Abstract:

"In their efforts to improve the management of their organizations, health care administrators have been hampered by the hospital's traditional organizational structure - a structure that has promoted fragmentation among different professional disciplines." "This book offers health care executives and clinical leaders the guidelines they need to implement organizational innovations that can foster collaboration throughout the organization - and so improve productivity, organizational responsiveness, and quality of work life. The authors' comprehensive approach goes beyond restructuring to offer useful guidelines for choosing people to serve in key integrative positions, supporting the new structure through reward and information systems, and carrying out the change process."--Jacket.
