Modernes Krankenhausmanagement: Konzepte und Losungen by R. Salfeld, S. Hehner, R. Wichels

By R. Salfeld, S. Hehner, R. Wichels

Deutsche Krankenh?user haben – als Reaktion auf die ver?nderten Rahmenbedingungen – in den letzten Jahren vielf?ltige, leading edge Ans?tze 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 Qualit?t medizinischer Leistungserbringung. Gleichwohl muss sich der gesamte Sektor auch in den n?chsten Jahren gro?en Herausforderungen stellen. Der Erfolg der einzelnen Krankenh?user wird zunehmend davon abh?ngen, ob es gelingt, immer mehr Patienten mit immer h?heren Erwartungen an medizinischen Fortschritt und Behandlungsqualit?t wirklich zufriedenstellend zu betreuen. Und dies bei anhaltender Ressourcenknappheit und wachsendem Verdr?ngungswettbewerb. Dieses Buch zeigt Wege auf, wie jedes Krankenhaus die vermeintliche Quadratur des Kreises l?sen kann: Mehr Leistung, bei verbesserter Qualit?t, mit sinkendem Aufwand! Die Vorschl?ge der Autoren beruhen auf langj?hrigen Erfahrungen in der Beratung von Krankenh?usern und Krankenhausgruppen im In- und Ausland. Das Spektrum reicht von neuen F?hrungs- und Organisationsmodellen ?ber die patientenzentrierte Gestaltung von Behandlungsabl?ufen 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 Zusammenh?nge und Konzeptionen. Daf?r sorgt schon ihr h?chst unterschiedlicher fachlicher heritage: Rainer Salfeld ist Jurist und Betriebswirt, Steffen Hehner Pharmazeut und Reinhard Wichels approbierter Arzt mit langj?hriger Krankenhauserfahrung.
