The value of the physician executive role to organizational effectiveness and performance.Health Care Manage Rev. 1994 Fall; 19(4):56-63.HC
With the growing importance of medical management as a component of health care delivery, it is important to understand the extent to which physician executives assist their organizations in the provision of health care that is efficient and of high quality. To date, research on the role of physician executives in large health care organizations has been limited. This research attempts to address some of the gaps in our understanding of the value of the role of the physician executive and explores the anticipated opportunities for expansion of that role as health care organizations attempt to respond to a rapidly changing health care environment.
