To provide optimal care for their patients, healthcare leaders must consider the broader context in which care is delivered. Population, Community, and Public Health Management explains how to improve care for patients and the broader community by applying management concepts beyond the walls of an individual institution.
This extensively revised second edition has evolved from a casebook into a core textbook. Eight expanded overview chapters give students the definitions, frameworks, and primary concepts they need to analyze the case studies. Didactic chapters on population, community, and public health examine the differences and similarities between these fields from a management viewpoint.
The book features 16 real-world cases that present multi-faceted, complex management dilemmas in settings that extend beyond hospitals and doctors' offices. Existing themes of value-based financing and population health management are pursued in updated cases focused on veterans health, services for seniors, and more. Seven cases new to this edition explore current topics such as integrating public health and healthcare delivery and providing healthcare to immigrant children via schools.
