Book Description

As developed economies enter a period of slower growth, emerging economies such as India have become prime examples of how more can be achieved with less. Innovations in Healthcare Management: Cost-Effective and Sustainable Solutions explores recent innovations in healthcare from a global and Indian perspective.

The book presents new concepts, methods, and tools for low-cost, high-volume solutions that improve access to care. It describes how to organize resources and flows so that given targets including cost, clinical quality, and patient experience can be achieved with available resources. It also covers nontraditional ecosystems of innovation outside of pure technology, such as social persuasion, rural health delivery, exploitation of economies of scale, prevention-oriented primary care, medical education, and hospital design.

After reading this book, readers will possess the understanding required to implement new ideas and new models of delivery of affordable care in healthcare systems around the world.
