520    The US healthcare system excels in research, innovation, 
       and clinical care, but is failing to keep up with the 
       operational challenges of the digital age. Today's 
       healthcare organizations face immense financial challenges,
       and their most valuable resources--people, rooms, and 
       equipment--are being used inefficiently. The result? Long 
       wait times for patients, overstressed staff, underused 
       assets, and poor ROI for organizations.  Why do health 
       systems struggle with optimization? The fundamental 
       problem is one of matching an unpredictable demand for 
       services with a constrained supply. The math being used to
       solve this problem is a holdover from the paper-and-pencil
       era.  In Better Healthcare Through Math, authors Mohan 
       Giridharadas and Sanjeev Agrawal show you that there is a 
       better way. Healthcare systems can harness the power of 
       sophisticated, analytics-driven mathematics to optimize 
       the matching of supply and demand. By upgrading to 
       software systems built on better math, they can enable 
       staff to make data-based decisions to flatten peaks of 
       demand and create smoother patient flow.
