Strategic Management of Health Care Organizat

Strategic Management of Health Care Organizat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This fifth edition of the classic text, Strategic Management of Health Care Organizations, introduces strategic thinking, strategic planning, and strategic momentum to advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as practitioners in the field of health care. It demonstrates how strategic managers can become strategic thinkers with the crucial skills to evaluate the changing environment, analyze data, question assumptions, and develop new ideas.

Swayne, Duncan, and Ginter present methods to develop and document a plan of action through strategic planning and illustrate how, as managers attempt to carry out the strategic plan, they evaluate its success, learn more about what works, and incorporate new strategic thinking into future planning, strategy formulation, and situational analysis. They demonstrate how strategic management “maps” can provide the direction needed for successful implementation.

In this new edition, all chapters have been revised and contain new or updated Introductory Incidents and Perspectives. Appendix A has been revised to match the new model of strategic thinking, planning, and managing the strategic momentum. Twenty real-life case studies, including nine new cases and three updated classics, present diverse strategic situations in an accessible manner that enhances the applicability of the concepts for students and professionals.

The text is supported by PowerPoint slides and an Instructors’ Manual. Visit www.blackwellpublishing.com/swayne for details.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive, concise text on strategic management as it applied to a variety of health care organizations: physicians offices, hospitals, long-term care, health departments and others. The central theme of the text is that business-oriented strategic management can improve the success of health care organizations.

New to the fourth edition:

  • each chapter has been fully updated and revised

  • situational analysis and implementation are explicitly tied together through the value chain framework

  • it includes 22 case studies, of which 10 are brand-new.

The text also retains the important features that have made previous editions of the book such a success. Each chapter contains:

  • a generous number of examples and exhibits

  • summaries and conclusions

  • key terms and concepts

  • questions for class discussion

  • additional readings

  • appendices that assist readers by presenting ways to analyze health care cases and make oral presentations.
