Reengineering Organized Delivery Systems The Center for Case ManagementManaged care pressures are forcing the creation of larger and larger delivery systems, but little is known about how to coordinate clinical services within these complex systems. This ground breaking resource outlines six specific mechanisms to successfully accomplish clinical integration, and narrow the gap between those who manage patient care services and those who plan overall health systems. Written by experts- executives, doctors, and nurses-the book offers down-to-earth guidance and tested strategies for creating and improving clinical integration.Throughout the book, the authors include vivid case examples as well as illustrative tables, diagrams, and figures. Tonges' book should be required reading in all health care administration programs. Under one cover, this dynamic, up-to-the-moment book shows how clinical integration can and must be achieved in today's managed care environment. -Barbara Barnum, RN, Ph.D., FAAN, professor of Clinical Nursing, Columbia University School of Nursing

"Tonges' book should be required reading in all health careadministration programs.

"Every biochemical system has a rate limiting reaction. In the caseof clinical integration, the limitations come from the vagaries ofphysician culture and the lack of a unified information system.Tonges and her colleagues in their new book provide us with all thenecessary enzymes to speed this rate limiting reaction along. Mostintegrated delivery systems want us to believe that they haveovercome these limitations and created a clinically integratedenterprise. The contributors to this volume know what a canard thisis, and the distillation of their observations, insights, advice, and case studies will help even the most incredulous physicianbelieve in clinical integration. The vocabulary may be foreign atfirst, but the chemical reaction when complete, will provide bothheat and light." --David B. Nash, associate dean and director, Health Policy and Clinical Outcomes, Thomas Jefferson UniversityHospital
