Part of the Computers in Health Care book series (HI)


Healthcare management, or the management of patient care, has long been discussed both within and outside of the healthcare industry. Organizations responsible for health care continuously remodel the care delivery process, seeking optimal health for the populations they serve while attempting to match and optimize resource costs to payments received. External forces have had a significant impact on the healthcare industry by raising quality of care issues, including access, as well as applying reimbursement modifications in attempts to curtail high healthcare costs.
