An Approach for Systems Analysis of Patient Care Operations

Keating, Charles B. PhD; Morin, Mary MSN, RN

Abstract

A healthcare landscape characterized by cost pressures, advancing technologies, staffing shortages, and increasing regulation is the norm for nursing leaders. High performance in these environments requires effective operational structures. These structures must respond to change while maintaining operational stability. An approach to assist nursing leaders in systemic analysis of operational structure is presented here. The approach helps leaders to identify structural inadequacies that limit operational performance.
