Description

Why is there a need to ‘innovate healthcare’? The basic reason stems from the sheer scale of the challenges now facing healthcare provision in the UK and across many other countries. The aim of this book is to interrogate past and current attempts to innovate in this arena and to draw-out the key lessons.

Innovating Healthcare: The Role of Political, Managerial and Clinical Leadership presents the latest state of knowledge based on original data from a series of NIHR-funded research projects set in the context of a review of extensive secondary research. The book draws upon first-person verbatim accounts of change attempts made by doctors and other clinicians as well as upon research findings about the roles played by policy-makers and managers. The analysis draws upon theory and practice in leadership, innovation and institution-building. The mutually-reinforcing contributions of political, managerial and clinical leadership are at the core of the investigative narrative.

This book will be of interest to students and researchers, clinicians and managers in the health and care sectors as well as policy-makers. While the focus in on healthcare, the book has wider relevance for students of management, leadership, innovation and organizational studies.

About the Series

Routledge Studies in Health Management

The health care sector is now of major significance, economically, scientifically and societally. In many countries, health care organizations are experiencing major pressures to change and restructure, while cost containment efforts have been accentuated by global economic crisis. Users are demanding higher service quality, and health care professions are experiencing significant reorganization whilst operating under increased demands from an ageing population.

Critically analytic, politically informed, discursive and theoretically grounded, rather than narrowly technical or positivistic, the series seeks to analyse current health care organizations. Reflecting the intense focus of policy and academic interest, it moves beyond the day to day debate to consider the broader implications of international organizational and management research and different theoretical framings.

The series welcomes proposals on the following themes:

  • What organization theories best shed light on current health care organizations?
  • How does organizational change take place in health care organizations?
  • How can novel health policy arenas (e.g. patient safety and quality) be conceptualised?
  • Which narratives of health care reforming become influential and why in the political and policy domains?
  • Who are the key actors in current health care reform? E.g. Rise of management consulting and think tanks.
  • ‘doing more with less’ in health care post the 2008 economic crisis; what is the assessment of policies and strategies adopted?
  • Why do countries vary in their experience of health care reform?
  • What are the key developments within the health care professions and their implications for health care management?
  • How important is the push from Science and Technology reshaping health care systems?
  • What are the broader social and organizational effects of new ICTs in health care settings?
