Effective Management in Healthcare Organizations
The present environments for healthcare organizations contain many forces demanding unprecedented levels of change. These forces include changing demographics, increased customer outlook, increased competition, and strengthen governmental pressure. Meeting these challenges will require healthcare organizations to go through fundamental changes and to continuously inquire about new behavior to produce future value. Healthcare is an information-intensive process. Pressures for management in information technology are increasing as healthcare organizations feature to lower costs, improve quality, and increase access to care. Healthcare organizations have developed better and more complex. Information technology must keep up with the dual effects of organizational complication and continuous progress in medical technology. The literature review will discuss how health care organizations can provide effective care by the intellectual use of information.
Traditionally, powerful people in organizations are defined as those who are strong, aggressive, knowledgeable, somewhat ruthless, intelligent, insightful, and empathetic. According to this view, anyone who possesses these traits and characteristics can effectively navigate the jungle that healthcare administration has become. However, on closer inspection, simply possessing these personality is not enough. Powerful people are not born powerful. Rather, powerful people have a talent for dramatizing, communicating, using, and exploiting whatever resources they possess. Being powerful is a skill. Success and excellence in healthcare management invariably engage in bringing various power resources to bear on any particular situation, in the right way and at the right time. The management of an information system effectively does not happen over night. The manager must make certain that it take place in a organized way.
Market-driven healthcare restructuring has directed to the development of integrated delivery systems through mergers and changes in systems of imbursement for services. Healthcare organizations are undergoing the most important reorganizations and modification to meet the increasing demands of improved healthcare access and quality as well as lowered costs. As the use of information technology to development medical data increases, much of the critical information required to meet these challenges is being stored in digital design (Austin & Hornberger, 2000). Web-enabled information technologies can present the means for larger access and more useful integration of healthcare information from unlike computer functions and other information resources (Starkweather & Shropshire, 1994). Information management is the effective, efficient, organization-wide planning, directing, and control of information within an integrated technology system.
