Book Description

The second edition of Healthcare Management offers a comprehensive and methodical overview of the organizational types and administration tools that are used in managed care. The book is available in PDF format.

Managed care is becoming an increasingly central topic in discussions taking place all over the world concerning the structure of healthcare delivery systems. Over the course of the previous two decades, managed care strategies have had a significant influence on healthcare methods, mostly in terms of affected person orientation, high quality, and efficiency. It is generally agreed upon amongst professionals that implementing high-quality managed care strategies might save as much as twenty percent of the money that is spent on medical care. Not only is it possible to save costs by applying the appropriate organizational types and management principles, but it is also possible to improve the overall quality of the medical services that are provided. Therefore, managed care is significantly more than just a method for reducing costs.

Managed care’s proponents see it as a natural and necessary next stage in the evolution of today’s healthcare systems, hence they believe it should be implemented. Instead of being perceived as in conflict with one another, an increase in quality along with a decrease in price ought to be considered as consistent with one another. As a result, managed care is an answer to the inherent difficulties that exist within the delivery of healthcare.
