Quantitative Techniques for Hospital Planning and Control is published by J.R. Griffith, a professor of Health Management and Policy and Medical Administration.
The book sold about 10K copies in its first edition (an academic bestseller), and led to a series of authorized additional editions. More to the point, it was a monument in the development of more precise, informed, quantitative provider management. Griffith followed in 1987 with The Well-Managed Community Hospital, now in its 7th edition, and titled The Well-Managed Healthcare Organizatio. It is a recommended reference for American College of Healthcare Executives’ Fellowship Examination.
