About this book

Introduction

This book offers significant managerial and economic knowledge on hospitals, and will serve as a valuable tool for explaining complicated managerial and economical problems, and for facilitating decision-making processes. It bridges management and economic sciences - two complementary sciences that feed the process of making rational decisions. With particular reference to the education, the main aim of this book is to provide students of relevant schools and departments with the knowledge (managerial and economic) that will enable them to deal both efficiently and effectively with the real problems arising in a health care organization such as a hospital. In particular, by equipping students with appropriate managerial and economic knowledge, the aim is to give them a clear understanding of HOW to deal with the diverse and complex problems of hospitals while at the same time helping them to develop strategic approaches that will make hospitals more efficient and sustainable.
