To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is an excellent primer on management and leadership concepts for healthcare organizations. It covers a broad range of topics: strategic planning; organizational behavior and leadership; leadership and cost analysis; ethics and law. The writing is tight and lucid, each ending in a case study. Many chapters have good examples, and I appreciated the worked-through calculations for costing. The authors summarize a lot of theory in accessible ways, with the focus on implications for decision making and managing in the context of healthcare today (i.e. regulatory environment). Challenges are not ignored (for example, leveraging technological advances for healthcare), but overall the book is positive and accessible. I am teaching a new course in management and leadership for public health professionals and I think this book could be very relevant for that audience, as well as hospital managers and leaders of service delivery organizations.
