Reviews

<p> Healing Together tells the remarkable story of a decade-long labor-management partnership between Kaiser Permanente, one of the nation's first-and still largest-integrated health care systems, and its many unions. It is a tale filled with drama, as memorable individuals and complex coalitions take action before a compelling backdrop of institutions, interests, and initiatives. The authors provide wise insights into the many forces that conspire to undermine the labor-management partnership. Healing Together's clear-eyed view of the ever-present perils and potential payoffs for all parties makes this the most comprehensive and valuable account of labor-management innovation in years-and just in time, as the nation turns to the twin challenges of reforming both labor relations and health care. -John Paul MacDuffie, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania


<p> Scholars and practitioners of employment relations and health policy and administration are anxious to learn how the Kaiser Permanente partnership has performed and what it has accomplished since its inception. The authors of Healing Together provide an accurate, honest, thorough and compelling account of the partnership. Drawing on interviews with key players, surveys, and data collected by the KPP, the authors show how the partnership developed and functioned, where it succeeded and failed, and what can be learned from the experience. Paul F. Clark, Pennsylvania State University
