Abstract:
When Beaumont Hospital was in its first year of operation, the then Minister for Health , Dr. Rory O' Hanlon, announced publicly that aside from our primary purpose of providing a first-class range of medical facilities and services to the community we serve, he commission ed Beaumont Hospital to engage in a pilot development scheme on which to model a hospital organisation structure and information technology systems to meet specific objectives. These objectives included, inter alia, the development of new resource allocating mechanisms that would enable cost- effectiveness and efficiency to be monitored and evaluated . An alert administrator will know that as a public service institution with limited resources at its disposal and where accountability and delegated responsibility come into play, a hospital has to be run like a business. Yet hospitals are vastly more complex than a typical business. Techniques and strategies that work in manufacturing and retailing, for example, may well prove inadequate in the hospital sector.
