Overview

Strategic Management of Health Care Organizations, Third Edition is a comprehensive and concise text on strategic management as it applies to a variety of health care organizations. The central theme is that business-oriented strategic management can improve the success of health care organizations in a turbulent environment. Current health care examples are integrated throughout the 14 chapters of text, organized around a model of strategic management. Step-by-step, it presents the theory of strategic management and a process to carry out strategic management. The text includes 18 cases and 5 helpful appendices.

The new edition combines the first 2 chapters to present the model of strategic management earlier, and strategic change was moved to Chapter 6 to better connect the strategy evaluation process with strategic change. A new Chapter 3, Competitor Analysis has been added. Chapter 4 has been rewritten to provide a process to assess internal resources, capabilities, and competencies.
