Applications for Other Health Care Organizations

Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 120)

In earlier chapters, models of performance evaluation for major health care providers were presented. These included hospitals, physician offices, nursing homes, health maintenance organizations, and home health care. There are many other health care providers that serve the patient needs, sometimes in conjunction with major providers, and sometimes independently. The literature shows that a variety of performance models were developed for providers such as dialysis centers, community mental health centers, community based youth services, organ procurement organizations, aging agencies, dental providers, pharmacies, ophthalmology centers, diagnostic and screening centers, and so on (Hollingsworth, 2003). In this chapter, performance models for selected health service providers are presented.
