Publication/Presentation Date

Abstract

Organizations have expended enormous resources to restructure care delivery Despite the growing literature describing these organizational innovations there is a paucity of credible data that reflects systematic measurement and evaluation of such changes. This report not only describes a comprehensive research based restructuring effort in a 720 bed acute care hospital, but it also describes an outcomes evaluation strategy and associated findings that may serve as a model and a guide for other healthcare institutions.
