The health care industry differs from most other industries in that medical pricing is primarily administered by the government and private insurers and in that it uses several types of contracts. Providers may receive a fixed sum for all necessary services within a given period of time, for the necessary services to treat a given condition, or for each specific service. Medical providers may also be reimbursed on the basis of cost. The industry is changing dramatically, offering many natural experiments to aid understanding of the economics of pricing for health care. In "Pricing the Priceless", Joseph Newhouse explains the different pricing systems and how they affect resource allocation and efficiency. All pricing arrangements, he explains, involve trade-offs. The advantages of more inclusive bases of payment, for example, may be offset by incentives for providers to select good risks or to stint on the delivery of services. Newhouse focuses on the efficiency of pricing. He also discusses large issues of equity, fair distribution of burden, and social justice. Although most of the examples are American-based, the same issues arise in all medical care financing and delivery systems, and the theories and models are general enough to apply to many institutional contexts. The topics include Medicare, managed care, the contemporary integration of health insurance and medical care, the management of moral hazard and stinting, uncertainty and risk aversion, the demand for health insurance, agency relationship, information disparities, regulation and supply-side and demand-side selection.

One small idea can ignite a revolution just as a single matchstick can start a fire.One such idea— putting employees first and customers second— sparked a revolution at HCL Technologies, the IT services giant.In this candid and personal account, Vineet Nayar—HCLT’s celebrated CEO— recounts how he defied the conventional wisdom that companies must put customers first, then turned the hierarchical pyramid upside down by making management accountable to the employees, and not the other way around.By doing so, Nayar fired the imagination of both employees and customers and set HCLT on a journey of transformation that has made it one of the fastest-growing and profitable global IT services companies and, according to BusinessWeek, one of the twenty most influential companies in the world. Chapter by chapter, Nayar recounts the exciting journey of how he and his team implemented the employee first philosophy by:• Creating a sense of urgency by enabling the employees to see the truth of the company’s current state as well as feel the “ romance” of its possible future state• Creating a culture of trust by pushing the envelope of transparency in communication and information sharing• Inverting the organizational hierarchy by making the management and the enabling functions accountable to the employee in the value zone• Unlocking the potential of the employees by fostering an entrepreneurial mind-set, decentralizing decision making, and transferring the ownership of “ change” to the employee in the value zoneRefreshingly honest and practical, this book offers valuable insights for managers seeking to realize their aspirations to grow faster and become self-propelled engines of change.

The last two decades have seen the rise and rise of the service economy, where image - and customer perceptions - are crucially important in building a successful business. Rarely do we buy a hard, tangible object called a 'product'. Financial services sell peace of mind; car manufacturers sell a self-image and an aspirational lifestyle; computer and software companies offer 'solutions' - even food is fashion. Nigel Barlow draws on two decades of experience in 20 countries to argue that the age of service has failed to deliver on its promises. He goes far beyond the standard business-speak cliches of customer service to show why merely satisfying customers is not enough. He explores with original examples and first-hand experinces why service so often falls short of customer expectations, and shows how to think and act to create legendary service in the reader's own organization.
