Advances in Health Care Organization Theory
Advances in Health Care Organization Theory, Second Edition, introduces students in health administration to the fields of organization theory and organizational behavior and their application to the management of health care organizations. The book explores the major health care developments over the past decade and demonstrates the contribution of organization theory to a deeper understanding of the changes in the delivery system, including the historic passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.
Taking both a micro and macro view, editors Stephen S. Farnsworth Mick and Patrick D. Shay collaborate with a roster of contributing experts, including James W. Begun, S. Diane Brannon, Roice D. Luke, Douglas R. Wholey, and Jacqueline S. Zinn, to compile a comprehensive volume that covers the latest in organization theory.
