This book is a provocative and useful compendium of ideas and historic perspectives that are current and applicable.
Health care is a highly dynamic and changing industry. While the hospital still occupies a major position in the system, more specialized organizations have increased significantly in number and importance, such as health maintenance organizations, clinics, long-term care institutions, laboratories, and outpatient units such as surgi-centers.
This probing and incisive book aims to educate administrators to relate not only to the environment of their particular organization, but to others that have both direct and indirect relationships.
Changes in governmental regulations and societal changes are reviewed in detail, with a view to showing their impact on the industry. Managerial issues and functions covering a panoply of major responsibilities form the core of the book.
"... In outlining their strategies, the authors have boldly selected the approaches that they felt would be most helpful to managers in improving their performance. However, they never lose sight that the overriding mission is to provide access to high quality health care while containing the costs." - from the back cover
"It is a provocative and useful compendium of ideas and historic perspectives that are current and applicable. It is a worthy contribution to the health care literature." - From David L. Everhart, President Emeritus, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago
