A growing, aging population, the rise to epidemic proportions of various chronic diseases, competing, often overlapping medical technologies, and of course, skyrocketing costs compounded by waste and inefficiency - these are just a few of the multifarious challenges currently facing healthcare delivery. Anunexpected source of solutions is being imported from the manufacturing sector: lean thinking.Lean Principles for Healthcare presents a conceptual framework, management principles, and practical tools for professionals tasked with designing and implementing modern, streamlined healthcare systems or overhauling faulty ones. Focusing on core components such as knowledge management, e-health, patient-centeredness, and collaborative care, chapters illustrate lean concepts in action across specialties (as diverse as nursing, urology, and emergency care) and around the globe. Extended case examples show health systems responding to consumer needs and provider realities with equal efficiency and effectiveness, and improved quality and patient outcomes. Further, contributors tackle the gamut of technological, medical, cultural, and business issues, among them:Initiatives of service-oriented architecture towards performance improvementAdapted lean thinking for emergency departmentsLean thinking in dementia care through smart assistive technologySupporting preventive healthcare with persuasive servicesValue stream mapping for lean healthcareA technology mediated solution to reduce healthcare disparities Geared toward both how lean ideas can be carried out and how they are being used successfully in the real world, Lean Principles for Healthcare not only brings expert knowledge to healthcare managers and health services researchers but to all who have an interest in superior healthcare delivery.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,0, Avans+ Hogeschool B.V., Breda (Verwaltungs- und Wirtschaftsakademie, Krefeld), course: Bachelor of Business Administration, 93 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: First of all, the following chapter will deal with the framework of brand evaluation. To give an idea of the internet service provider Yahoo!, the company will be introduced in the first part. The next part concentrates on the role an established brand plays and what effect it has. The following chapter will point out what it means to lead a brand and which value it has to a company. As a matter of course, the conclusions will be related to the special case of Yahoo!. To provide a general survey of the topic of brand evaluation, the next chapter deals with the economical and judicial frame. It explains the situation within the topic of intangible assets and their special treatment concerning the balance sheet. In Chapter 2.4.2 the different causes for brand evaluation will be described and the cause of acquisition will be determined as the appropriate cause for the present case of Yahoo!. Chapter 2.5 concentrates on the necessary requirements for a sufficient and objective brand evaluation, especially in the case of acquisition. Before three of the most important and established methods of brand evaluation will be analysed, the large number of all current methods have to be categorised. For that reason the third chapter will start with the classification of methods. After regarding the three possible categories, the last part will come to the decision for just one category, which comes into question for the present case.(...) After these three analyses, it is possible to overlook the whole topic of brand evaluation. Chapter 2.5 defines the general requirements for an objective method of brand evaluation. The following chapters will survey three of the most popular models and will point out their advantages and disadvantages. In the result conclusions can be drawn from the accomplished analyses. In this way a new suitable method of calculation will be developed in Chapter 4.2. It is a try to find a solution for the problem of the current methods' weaknesses and to create an objective method, which regards the most important criteria and fulfils the requirements for an impartial evaluation.

Applied Welfare Economics
96,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

What is the effect of a new infrastructure on the well-being of a local community? Is a tax reform desirable? Does the privatization of a telecommunication provider increase social welfare? To answer these questions governments and their policy advisors should have in mind an operative definition of social welfare, and cannot rely on simple official statistics, such as GDP. The price we observe are often misleading as welfare signals, and costs and benefits for the society should be based on 'shadow prices', revealing the social opportunity costs of goods and of changes of the world. This book explains how to apply these welfare economics ideas to the real world. After a theoretical discussion of the concept of social welfare, a critical analysis of the traditional doctrine of welfare economics embodied in the Two Fundamental Theorems, and a presentation of social cost-benefit analysis, the book introduce the readers to an applied framework. This includes the empirical estimation of shadow prices of goods, of the social cost of labour and capital, the assessment of risk. This book also includes the state of the art of international experience with CBA, including ex-post evaluation of major projects, economic rates of return in different sectors, and a case study on privatisation, is presented. This book offers a unique and original blend of theory, empirics and experience. The theoretical discussion clarifies why shadow prices are not virtual market equilibrium prices, as they arise as the solution of a planning problem, often with governments and economic agents constrained in their information and powers. The empirical chapters show how to compute proxies of the shadow prices in simple ways. The experience chapters draw from first hand research, gained by the Author and his collaborators over many years of advisory work for the European Commission and other international and national institutions.

Solution-based casework is an approach to assessment, case planning, and case management that combines what we know from clinical social work with what we value about sound social work practice. It is grounded in family-centered social work and draws from clinical approaches within social work and mental health. By integrating problem- and solution-focused approaches that form the clinical and social work traditions, treatment partnerships are more easily formed between family, caseworker, and service provider. Solution-Based Casework is a skill-based, practice-oriented text that provides the specific guidance that students and new practitioners need in order to make sense quickly of the complex tasks of assessment and case planning in child welfare.

This costly proposition, however, is no longer necessary. As part of its new Unified VPN Suite, Cisco Systems® now offers next-generation Layer 2 VPN services like Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol version 3 (L2TPv3) and Any Transport over MPLS (AToM) that enable service providers to offer Frame Relay, ATM, Ethernet, and leased-line services over a common IP/MPLS core network. By unifying multiple network layers and providing an integrated set of software services and management tools over this infrastructure, the Cisco® Layer 2 VPN solution enables established carriers, IP-oriented ISP/CLECs, and large enterprise customers (LECs) to reach a broader set of potential VPN customers and offer truly global VPNs. Layer 2 VPN Architectures is a comprehensive guide to consolidating network infrastructures and extending VPN services. The book opens by discussing Layer 2 VPN applications utilizing both AToM and L2TPv3 protocols and comparing Layer 3 versus Layer 2 provider-provisioned VPNs. In addition to describing the concepts related to Layer 2 VPNs, this book provides an extensive collection of case studies that show you how these technologies and architectures work. The case studies include both AToM and L2TPv3 and reveal real-world service provider and enterprise design problems and solutions with hands-on configuration examples and implementation details. The case studies include all Layer 2 technologies transported using AToM and L2TPv3 pseudowires, including Ethernet, Ethernet VLAN, HDLC, PPP, Frame Relay, ATM AAL5 and ATM cells, and advanced topics relevant to Layer 2 VPN deployment, such as QoS and scalability.

Investing in E-Health
137,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

As the Internet's presence in health care grows more pervasive, an increasing number of health care providers have begun to implement eHealth innovations in their practice. The interactive health communication system (IHCS), one such eHealth solution, provides consumers with information, informal support, and a venue for communication. Investing in eHealth: What it Takes to Sustain Consumer Health Informatics examines the evolution of the IHCS and the significant changes in organizational culture and operational systems that may be required for successful and sustained implementation. This book explores the development of a model (funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality in 1998) to predict and explain the degree of success of such implementation efforts. This model allows an institution to benchmark its progress towards IHCS implementation and advises administrators where to invest resources to increase the chance of successful implementation. A set of case studies highlights key features of the model; each study describes an attempt by an organization to implement the Comprehensive Health Enhancement Support System (CHESS), a proven IHCS. After examining the success or failure of each particular implementation, the book suggests steps that could have been taken to address weaknesses identified by the model. Investing in eHealth culminates in a set of general guidelines for any health care provider striving to successfully employ the model, and suggests directions for future research. TOC:Section 1. Introductory Chapters.- Preamble.- Implementation Theory and Literature Review.- Systems Design and Analysis.- Description of the Model.- Description of CHESS.- Section 2. Case Studies.- Union Hospital.- Strand Hardin Health Care.- Grace Hospital.- Associated Practice.- Simpson Clinic.- State Caregiver Support Agency.- Section 3.
