Overview

This work is a collection of critical ideas relating organization science to both operations and accomplishments in the health care environment. A thematic guide for current leaders and practitioners, as well as health administration, business administration and organization development professors and students alike, this volume pulls in a broad cross-section of perspectives on the important linkage of scholarship and practice with a solid global perspective. Covering key themes from culture change leadership, teams, IT and a systemic perspective of health care overall, it provides both practical insights and theoretical perspectives, that will support immediate improvements, and encourage longer term dialogue on how organization science can impact the delivery, structure and operations of health care systems globally. Specific chapters lock at enhancing the cultural competency of health care organizations; the four C's of leadership development; addressing dysfunctional relations among health care teams; and treating health care organizations as 'patients.'
