Administration and Stakeholders factor
Administration and Stakeholders factor
A current study shown by the Health Resources and Services Administration (2004) confirmed that a variety of factors affect the demand and supply of direct-care in health care. These factors can be divided into two groups: policy controllers which they have important impact and exogenous factors, which policy makers have little or no control. Policy controls are recognized as; employee’s pay, behavior of employees, unionization, revenue and principles, employee education and learning programs, management regulation, and new models of care and service. Organizational factors
As a common rule, managers of health care organizations exist within a unique professional culture (Seidel, Seavey, & Lewis, 1989, p. 10). Management team is needed for any organizations to develop and improve. If a business can effectively knock into the new ideas of all human resources and employees across all of the management level then they will be able to apply new and creative changes within their organization. The first purpose of management is development. Improvement within the organization can add value to a business’s efficiency as long as management learns to roll the modern ideas from managers through the organization. The managerial structure of an organization depends closely on the capabilities of their employees. The more the employees get educated on the modern technologies and ideas, the more efficient and productive they will be. Leadership team must have the ability to motivate employees to achieve superior goals. Managers must use their leadership skills in new ways in order to help lead employees into building modern ideas for the betterment of the organization. These new innovative ideas will help the employees and management determine new and most important procedures that could develop their business’s infrastructure. Structure and Culture Communication are both a contributory factor and a result of an organization’s structure and culture. The management team should be able to manage and control the business progress by changing and restructuring the company’s culture. Controlling can be radically altered by new ideas which would result in more efficient ways to help the business change to accomplish their overall goals. The new ideas or better say new technologies are not only a successful tool but a required element for better quality. Recently business world is continually growing and changing; the only way for organizations to stay successful is for them to remain competitive and innovative. The organization system in any organizations built based on the goal or goals for the organization. Then, the objectives or goals of those at the next lower level are decided upon so that they serve as the means to goals at the higher level. In this way the work of the organization is more clearly structured and better coordinated (Wieland, 1981, p. 233). However, by giving subordinates an opportunity to propose their objectives, and to participate with their superiors in setting goals, motivation may be enhanced. Depending on how the joint goal-setting meetings are handled, and also how follow-up and subsequent performance appraisals are treated, more or less of an impact may be made on "people" variables, such as motivation, cooperation, communication, and supportive interpersonal relations (Wieland, 1981, p. 233). Recently, a positive customer relation has become a critical component of health care service delivery (Levy, 1992, p. 366). As the trend has matured, health care providers have realized that effective service strategy must go beyond mere "guest relations" programs to the establishment of a culture of service excellence that "permeates administrative priorities and strategic planning, policies and procedures, physical design, and staff attitudes and behaviors" (Levy, 1992, p. 366). The approaches that have resulted from this new way of...
