Based on a study of eleven health care systems and their response to managed care and cost containment pressures, this provocative book challenges the nation to create a supportive environment for the evolution of our health care system. Written by the country's foremost authority on health services management and a team of experts, Remaking Health Care in America promotes an integrated approach to health care--one that focuses on alliances, linkages, and partnerships with public health and community/social service agencies. As a concrete guide to achieving this transformation, the authors present a conceptual framework for the integration of finance, human resources, strategic planning, total quality management, information systems, physician integration, and clinical integration that will ultimately result in an effective community health care management system.
Stephen Shortell, one the country's leading health care management authorities, and his team of experts use the most current data available to update their classic book Remaking Health Care in America. This expanded second edition includes a clear conceptual framework for health care leaders who must develop more integrative systems of care to meet the challenge of the evolving health care industry. The book also provides practical suggestions and myriad recommendations for developing cost-effective delivery systems across the United States.
