Too often in the fast-moving healthcare field, decision makers rely primarily on what has worked before.
Evidence-Based Management in Healthcare explains how healthcare leaders can move from making educated guesses to using the best available information to make decisions.
Learn what evidence-based management (EB management) is and how it can focus thinking and clarify the issues surrounding a decision. The book provides a straightforward process for:
asking the right questions,
gathering supporting information from various sources,
evaluating the information, and
applying it to solve management challenges.
Numerous real-life examples illustrate how the EB management approach is used in a variety of situations, from inpatient bed planning to operating room scheduling to leadership development. These examples also demonstrate the potential costs and benefits of EB management.
