Publisher Comments:

As a growing number of healthcare organizations implement project management principles to improve cost and service efficiencies, they are in desperate need of resources that illustrate the project management needs of today 's healthcare professional. Project Management for Healthcare fills this need. Using easy-to-follow language, it explains how the time-tested principles of project management can help maximize limited resources and ensure the highest possible quality of care.

Exploring the discipline of project management from the perspective of the healthcare environment, the book dissects the project process and provides the tools and techniques required to successfully plan, execute, and control any healthcare-based project. From identifying stakeholders to constructing a project plan, it covers the spectrum of project planning activities. Complete with chapter summaries, exercises, hints, review questions, and case studies, it illustrates applications across a range of healthcare settings.

Explaining how to adapt these processes to drive down costs and improve the quality of care in any healthcare setting, the book includes a case study of a medical facility that illustrates the proper application of the tools and techniques needed to manage healthcare projects effectively and efficiently.
