The Strategic Agenda for Community Health Care Organizations

Griffith, John R.

Collapse Box

Abstract

This article proposes a vision, strategies, and structure for the organizations that will replace community hospitals. The vision must embrace health rather than health care, and cost reduction as an explicit, measured goal. Strategies must include immediate cost savings, but also longer-term revision of organizations, wage structures, prevention, and medical attitudes. Structures must assure local stakeholders their voice in health issues.
