Managing a Health Care Alliance: Improving Community Cancer Care
Arnold D. Kaluzny, Richard B. Warnecke
Jossey-Bass Publishers, Jan 1, 1996 - Medical - 241 pages
Managing a Health Care Alliance describes the formation of new organizational alliances dedicated to ensuring state-of-the-art health care within local communities. The book is based on the results of the Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP) - a groundbreaking study that linked fifty-two communities with major research centers. The program offers compelling evidence of the effectiveness of joining clinical research facilities and community providers. As the study demonstrates, the research centers benefit from the pool of diverse participants in clinical trials and the communities have access to state-of-the-art care. Using CCOP as an example, the authors show how to meet the challenge of providing quality health services in other arenas by creating new organizational models - working alliances between public and private participants. Written for health care managers, policy makers, and health service researchers, Managing a Health Care Alliance provides a detailed analysis of a pioneering study that offers a perspective on how alliance-type structures can meet the challenge of ensuring communities state-of-the-art health care.
