Quality management is a complex process, especially in healthcare. Managers in today's environment need more than just an understanding of the historical concepts of quality. They need to understand how to achieve quality within the structure and relationships of the complex system of a healthcare organization. In this new third edition, Kelly has enhanced the content to promote an understanding of systems thinking in health services organizations. While still providing readers with the foundational concepts of quality management, she instructs readers on the system implications of understanding stakeholders and the role of policy, establishing goals in complex systems, improving and managing process change, performance measurement, and teamwork.
