Potent Medicine is the compelling follow-up to On the Mend.  It offers practical advice and insights from Wisconsin’s collaborative efforts to transform healthcare and deliver better patient value. Three core elements are described:
   1. Delivery of care designed around the patient - using lean principles and methods to deliver care focused on patient needs
   2. Transparency of treatment quality and cost - making healthcare outcomes public for everyone
   3. Payment for outcomes - move away from fee-for-service to a system that pays based on quality and efficient care.

Potent Medicine is more than a book.  It is a call to action for doctors, patients, employers, policy-makers, and payers alike to work together to transform the healthcare system to deliver better quality at a lower cost for patients.
