Managerial Epidemiology for Health Care Organizations provides readers with a thorough and comprehensive understanding of the application of epidemiological principles to the delivery of health care services and management of health care organizations.
As health administration becomes evidence- and population-based, it becomes critical to understand the impact of disease on populations of people in a service area. This book also addresses the need of health organizations’ to demonstrate emergency preparedness and respond to bioterrorism threats.
This book introduces core epidemiology principles and clearly illustrates their essential applications in planning, evaluating, and managing health care for populations. This book demonstrates how health care executives can incorporate the practice of epidemiology into their various management functions and is rich with current examples, concepts, and case studies that reinforce the essential theories, methods, and applications of managerial epidemiology.
The first section, a primer on epidemiology, contains chapters on the current nomenclature and science of health assessment and health economics. The second section, in which the specific applications of epidemiology to health care administrators are explained, includes chapters on the assessment of health care utilization based on setting of care (ER, hospital-adult, hospital-pediatric, worksite) and the specific needs of the aged. This section also provides a cogent explanation to the pervasive impact of poverty and ethnicity on the assessment of health and health care utilization. Programming planning based on epidemiologic data, and disease management, are both included in this section.
Appendices provide a comprehensive and practical guide to the main performance indicators now applied to hospitals and health care organizations: NCQA, HEDIS, and Malcolm Baldrige Award criteria.
