Faced with strict government regulations and increasing service demands by consumers, healthcare providers find themselves accountable on both ends. Written to reflect the realities of the 21st century, Principles of Health Care Management considers the many outside forces influencing health care institutions, and in doing so provides a progressive and modern reference on how to effectively manage a health organization. Using relevant case studies to illustrate key points, this text explains the critical changes and challenges that administrators must deal with as they go about practicing their profession and what students must learn as they begin their study of this vital field. The Second Edition is a thorough revision with updated data, additional case studies, and a new section that explores new health legislation introduced after January 2009. Organized into five sections, the text covers: Essential foundation material on the U.S. health system A review of the essentials of healthcare management An examination of the crucial area of corporate compliance A look at how consumerism affects the healthcare organization A model of accountable management that begins with a reconceptualization of strategic planning and ends with an analysis of the accountable organization.
