July 22  

Return on Investment for Healthcare Quality Improvement provides tools and techniques for healthcare professionals working for quality improvement

Minneapolis — From Craig Solid, Ph.D. comes Return on Investment for Healthcare Quality Improvement. The book offers a comprehensive overview of performing return-on-investment (ROI) analyses for healthcare quality improvement (QI). In the United States, healthcare policy regarding physician and facility payment/reimbursement is steadily trending towards the use of “value-based” systems and away from the traditional “fee-for-service” (FFS) payment mechanisms. This volume aims to be a guide and a reference for healthcare professionals tasked with estimating and establishing ROI for QI. 

Solid has a B.A. from St. Olaf College, M.S. from Iowa State University, and a Ph.D. in Applied Economics from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Solid has over two decades of experience in the healthcare field and has been the owner and principal of Solid Research Group since its founding in 2011. Solid has co-authored over 50 peer-reviewed manuscripts. His work is focused on helping physicians and healthcare professionals improve the quality of care they deliver using tools such as data, measurement, and analytics. This can take the form of developing and testing quality measures, writing peer-reviewed journal manuscripts, and calculating ROI for a quality initiative, just to name a few. 

Return on Investment for Healthcare Quality Improvement is a must-have resource for healthcare providers, administrators, and other professionals who work in healthcare organizations, hospitals and other healthcare settings, health systems, and residency programs seeking to obtain outside funding, as well as policy makers and administrators of federal programs. 

Return on Investment for Healthcare Quality Improvement is now available in hardcover and ebook from online retailers including Amazon, Springer Publishing, and Barnes & Noble.
