Summary

To become a successful healthcare manager, students need to understand management theories and methods and know how to apply them to real-world problems. Management of Healthcare Organizations: An Introduction teaches this in an engaging way. The authors provide aspiring managers with theoretical background, practical methods, and hands-on exercises to prepare for careers in healthcare management, emphasizing the multifaceted nature of management problems and the need to combine a variety of approaches to solve them.

 

This text includes bulleted lists, examples, and exhibits to boost readability, retention, and engagement. Chapters are arranged to sequentially build a body of knowledge and a mental framework for management. Each chapter begins with a scenario taken from the same complex telehealth case study, reinforcing the complexity of management problems while introducing chapter concepts. Each chapter has updated information on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and strategies for managing clinical staff and performance, as well as “Try It, Apply It” real-world exercises.

 

This book combines time-tested fundamental principles with cutting-edge methods and current knowledge.
