I was excited to read this book because I have experienced the UCLA Health System firsthand as a patient/consumer. I gave birth at a UCLA hospital. I used many doctors who were part of the system.I knew the CEO had come up with some interesting ideas of how medical care should work. It was interesting to see what they actually were. Reading this book, I could pick out the kinds of things that doctors and nurses were expected to do: Knock before entering, let the patient see you wash your hands, [...]
This book read like an endorsement for the UCLA medical complex. It could have provided more value by going deeper into what makes UCLA a world class medical facility. I felt like it jumped from concept to concept and never went very deep into any of them. All in all, a good laundry list, but not a great book.There could have been great lessons for other medical organizations to follow. Instead it was teaser after teaser. I suppose other medical organizations could decide to follow through thems [...]

And yet, in this era of technology and driving more patients through the system with seemingly les [...]
Another great book by this author. I've now read all of his customer experience books, and my favorite is probably The New Gold Standard about The Ritz Carlton hotels. But, since I'm in healthcare, this book resonated with me directly and I hope to make this required reading for my colleagues. Although this is about UCLA, which is on the other side of the country, and in a very large metro area, the five principles can be carried over and applied in our smaller town setting. The 5 principles are [...]
I won this book through good reads and I am really glad that I did. I am considering starting my own business and this book has offered much needed guidance in this area!
This book changed the way I think and act to drive business results! Everyone should read it.
inspirational tales about the growth of UCLA and the leadership of Dr Feinberg.Not really into these leadership books, but informational for our new CEO at Geisinger
