Abstract

Managers and caregivers throughout the health care system are being asked to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of patient care while simultaneously reducing or at least maintaining levels of resource consumption. A principal strategy being used to achieve these goals is to consider information as a corporate strategic resource and provide enhanced information management methods and tools to caregivers and managers across the health sector. The idea is to use information to enable managers to most effectively utilize available resources.
