Intermountain Healthcare Case Study Gina L. Turley Northwestern University In the Harvard Business School case study of Intermountain Health Care (IHC), we learned about the efforts made by IHC to adopt a new strategy for managing health care delivery that is focused on improving care quality while simultaneously saving money.

Basic Rules and Regulations the Financial Manager Must Address While the United States has some of the best doctors and healthcare facilities in the world we fail at being efficient and effective. Currently there are too many unplanned readmissions, medication errors and hospital acquired infections. The United States health system does not effectively provide preventive medicine for individuals with chronic diseases, and this portion of health care consumers account for the majority of health care costs (Kocher et al., 2010).

Health Care Management: Definition, Shortcoming and Impacts Health care administration is defined as the process through which a country, region, or organization mobilizes health care resources. The end goal of health care administration/management is to effectively delegate a limited set of resources (money, manpower, hours) to create an optimal result (positive health outcomes). While the broadest goal is singular across all regimes, the means to access them are divergent. In some countries, such as the United States, market based models have commercialized health care (Woolhandler, 2003). Like any other product, health care in America is to be bought and sold on the open market. While there were alternative options available for the poor and elderly (Medicaid/Medicare), health care access was determined purely by market processes (Woolhandler, 2003).

“Running a health care organization is a team sport. It is very important that all members of the team-whether on the medical staff, in management or on the board-understand the role of governance and what constitutes effective governance” (Arnwine, 2002). Running a hospital is a difficult task. Several factors need to be seriously thought of and considered in every decision and undertaking. Unfortunately, all the three important factors in governing a hospital is not always in harmony. As likened to a team sport, if the three major components are not working with each other as a team, there will be tension and a great divide will be experienced. And often times, the patients will be in the middle and will be greatly impacted. This writer believes that there are several factors that contribute to the tension that usually exists among the medical staff, the board and administration. One factor is the disconnect, where each entity is not seeing each other eye to eye and their visions may be different from each other. Another factor may be the lack of communication in order to bridge the gap and to build a respectful and a relationship wherein there is trust for each end every member of the group. Often times, the medical staff is concerned with ensuring that patients are cared for in a manner that their practice is protected as well as the patients are getting the appropriate care. On the other hand, the board of trustees may be focused in ensuring that that

Visioning and Strategic Thinking in Healthcare A country’s economy and well-being depends upon how strong its healthcare system is. A country would grow into a stronger nation if the people are mentally and physically stronger. Moreover, healthcare systems are usually complex and complicated systems and thus, they need a lot of attention. As Donley (2005) states, “[t]he changing patterns of health care delivery have increased complexity in all practice environments” (p. 314). By a complicated system, it means how different healthcare organizations together play a pivotal role in measuring success of a country’s healthcare system. These healthcare organizations further rely on various departments within the system which are in turn led by various leaders. Thus, it is evident how leaders are the key link in deciding the fate
