Review:

This book will help readers see how data can be integrated with practice to foster improvements in managerial decision making. The cases are excellent examples of this approach. The focus on merging evidence into practice is critical for healthcare leaders, particularly because information is so readily available now. --Elizabeth Bradley, PhD, Director, Health Management Program, Yale University

Bridging the worlds of healthcare managers and researchers, the authors shed light on how the systematic use of evidence can improve important decisions and drive performance improvement. This book provides concrete examples and tools, as well as insights on the challenges of embedding evidence into practice. This is a must-read for managers, researchers, and clinicians who are on the frontlines of transforming our healthcare system. --Esther B. Neuwirth, PhD, Senior Manager, Evaluation and Innovation Care Management Institute, Kaiser Permanente

This book is the first of its kind. For the professional manager or student seeking to learn how to practice evidence-based management and decision making, this book is it! The authors have developed cases, processes, and techniques that can take practitioners and students to a higher-level of expertise in making effective decisions based upon informative scientific evidence and well-gathered organizational and business facts. This book is a wonderful accomplishment and long-overdue addition to the managerial knowledge base. --Denise M. Rousseau, PhD, H.J. Heinz II Professor of Organizational Behavior and Public Policy, and Director, Project on Evidence-based Organizational Practices, Carnegie Mellon University
