Health Management

About the Series

This series of textbooks on core management topics, is specifically oriented towards healthcare management, administration and leadership.

In almost all Western countries health care is in a state of radical reorientation. This series aims to answer the important contemporary questions such as:

  • How can we meet the needs of increasingly empowered ‘consumers'?
  • How do we incorporate ‘evidence based’ modes of working, re-motivate health care professionals and contain costs, all at the same time?

Written by experts in the field each book focuses on a different aspect of healthcare management, including information systems, patient flow systems, human resource management, change management and healthcare evaluation.
