Summary

This is a book of contemporary case studies centered around ambulatory healthcare organizations. Using many different organizational configurations, including medical groups, hospital ambulatory care clinics, community health alliances, and integrated delivery systems, the collection of cases authored by both executives and academics provide important insight into the real and important issues facing the health service executive today. In addition to the case studies, introductory and explanatory chapters on the constructive use of case study analysis for both individual and classroom use is included. It provides graduate students in health administration as well as executives within the field an opportunity to critically examine the cogent issues of practice within the healthcare delivery system's most popular setting: ambulatory care. The book features comprehensive and summary cases that can be used for a variety of purposes, including individual as well as group or executive team study and discussion. The cases are well written and contain sufficient detail for analysis. Ross provides an important contribution to the field with this case book. Not only is the subject matter of great popularity, the cases provide real and important insight into professional practice. This would be an excellent adjunct to his text on ambulatory care because it provides current examples of the important management principles associated with ambulatory services management. The variety of cases presented include issues ranging from delicate personnel issues to challenges presented when leading a community-based health alliance. As the field of health administration education strives towardrelevancy in practice, this book will be a welcome addition.
