Healthcare Management, 2nd Edition (PDF) offers a comprehensive and systematic overview of the organizational forms and management instruments applied in managed care.
Within the global discussion on the structure of healthcare systems, managed care is an increasingly vital topic. Over twenty years managed care approaches have basically influenced healthcare systems in terms of patient orientation, quality and efficiency. Experts accept that up to 20% of healthcare expenses can be saved by implementing high-quality managed care approaches. By using suitable organizational forms and management principles, not only can costs be reduced, but the quality of medical service provision can be increased. Managed care is thus much more than a cost-cutting strategy.
Advocates reflect managed care to be a logical and essential developmental step in contemporary healthcare systems. An increase in quality and at the same time a decrease in costs is not seen as clashing but rather as consistent. Therefore, managed care is a response to transformed challenges in the provision of healthcare.
