Managing Long-Term Care

by Connie Evashwick and James Riedel

Managing Long-Term Care by Health Care Administration’s Connie Evashwick and James Riedel. Published in 2004 by the Health Administration Press, Managing Long-Term Care introduces management concepts that can be applied to a wide range of long-term care settings, including provider, payer or regulatory organizations. The authors explore the thinking required for decision-making, present a framework for working with various issues and offer sources for more information. It is a practical look at the daily management challenges found in the long-term care environment. Managing Long Term Care explores such topics as human resources, management teams, information systems, strategic planning, marketing, quality assurance, ethics and financial management.

The book also features two chapters that offer a guide to health care professionals for managing their careers. In a time when it is becoming clearer and clearer that unique considerations associated with long-term care make managing LTC services different from managing a hospital, Managing Long Term Care provides an excellent resource for new LTC managers as well as LTC professionals entering managerial positions.
