Creating Systems, Book 1 of Ko Awatea’s Healthcare Transformation series, is now available as a Kindle e-book through Amazon.
The Healthcare Transformation series provides a toolkit for creating transformational change in the complex healthcare environment.
Transformational change is essential to enable the healthcare sector to meet increasing demand and increasing costs within a limited budget. Isolated service or process improvements are not enough: healthcare organisations must learn how to design and implement system integration and whole-of-system change that fundamentally transform the way care is delivered.
Book 1 of the series examines healthcare systems. It argues that the arrangement of healthcare into primary, secondary and tertiary care is no longer useful or fiscally prudent. We must move from a healthcare service in which institutions are the dominant type of organisation to one in which integrated systems dominate.
Creating Systems answers the questions:
• What are healthcare systems?
• Why are systems important?
• How systems are best managed
• How to design and build an integrated system of care
Creating Systems is available for purchase through Amazon.
