A Management Approach to Healthcare

Published: 2 Aug 2013

A thorough understanding of the whole field and all aspects of delivery are critical to contain costs and errors as well as to improve patient outcomes.

Healthcare delivery systems throughout the world are called upon to deliver more services, with enhanced technology, to more patients, at lower costs.
