In clear, easy-to-understand terms, Designing Health Care for Populations revels how the science of epidemiology (the study of the cuases, distribution, and control of disease in a population) can be implemented to lead all health care organizations. The authors, experts in health care management, decision science, and epidemiology, offer health care managers an essential resource for understanding the common bond between clinical medicine and the management of health care facilities. The book is filled with step-by-step guidelines for applying the discipline of epidemiology to the full spectrum of management operations.
Tapping into the knowledge, information, and guidelines in this book, health care professionals can learn to apply the principles of managerial epidemiology to help them achieve clinical improvement, integrate health care services, organize providers into networks, and evaluate and document organizational quality.
