Download E-books Modernes Krankenhausmanagement: Konzepte und Lösungen (German Edition) PDF

Deutsche Krankenhäuser haben – als Reaktion auf die veränderten Rahmenbedingungen – in den letzten Jahren vielfältige, cutting edge Ansätze entwickelt, um wirtschaftlicher zu arbeiten und ihre medizinischen Leistungen weiter zu verbessern. Vor allem deshalb steht das deutsche Krankenhaussystem heute im internationalen Vergleich wieder ganz vorne – gemessen an der Wirtschaftlichkeit, aber auch an der Qualität medizinischer Leistungserbringung.

Gleichwohl muss sich der gesamte Sektor auch in den nächsten Jahren großen Herausforderungen stellen. Der Erfolg der einzelnen Krankenhäuser wird zunehmend davon abhängen, ob es gelingt, immer mehr Patienten mit immer höheren Erwartungen an medizinischen Fortschritt und Behandlungsqualität wirklich zufriedenstellend zu betreuen. Und dies bei anhaltender Ressourcenknappheit und wachsendem Verdrängungswettbewerb.

Dieses Buch zeigt Wege auf, wie jedes Krankenhaus die vermeintliche Quadratur des Kreises lösen kann: Mehr Leistung, bei verbesserter Qualität, mit sinkendem Aufwand! Die Vorschläge der Autoren beruhen auf langjährigen Erfahrungen in der Beratung von Krankenhäusern und Krankenhausgruppen im In- und Ausland. Das Spektrum reicht von neuen Führungs- und Organisationsmodellen über die patientenzentrierte Gestaltung von Behandlungsabläufen und die Optimierung des Angebotsportfolios bis hin zur strategischen Repositionierung und zum Aufbau von Verbundstrukturen.

Die Autoren beschreiben dabei weit mehr als nur trockene betriebswirtschaftliche Zusammenhänge und Konzeptionen. Dafür sorgt schon ihr höchst unterschiedlicher fachlicher history: Rainer Salfeld ist Jurist und Betriebswirt, Steffen Hehner Pharmazeut und Reinhard Wichels approbierter Arzt mit langjähriger Krankenhauserfahrung.
