Description : This report examines primary health care across OECD countries before the COVID-19 pandemic, and draws attention to how primary health care is not living up to its full potential. Doing things differently – through new models of organising services, better co-ordination among providers, better use of digital technology, and better use of resources and incentives – helps to improve care, reduce the need for hospitalisations, and mitigate health inequalities.

Description : The rapid spread of COVID-19 added urgency to the need to address long-standing pressures on health systems, linked to growing citizens' expectations, population ageing and more complex and costly health care needs. As the first point of contact, primary health care that provides comprehensive, continuous, and co-ordinated care is key to boosting preventive care, treating those who need care, and helping people become more active in managing their own health. It has the potential to improve health system efficiency and health outcomes for people across socio-economic levels, and make health systems people-centred. This report examines primary health care across OECD countries before the COVID-19 pandemic, and draws attention to how primary health care is not living up to its full potential. Doing things differently - through new models of organising services, better co-ordination among providers, better use of digital technology, and better use of resources and incentives - helps to improve care, reduce the need for hospitalisations, and mitigate health inequalities. This report identifies key policy challenges that OECD countries need to address to realise the full potential of primary health care, and reviews progress and innovations towards transforming primary health care.

Description : "This text is one of JBL's many health policy books.

Description : All organizations, whether for profit, not for profit, or government, face issues of information technology management. While the concerns involved may differ from organization to organization, the principles of good information technology management remain the same. Using a compilation of articles on various topics relating to technology management, Handbook of Technology Management in Public Administration addresses the management, implementation, and integration of technology across a wide variety of disciplines. The book highlights lessons learned to assist you in solving contemporary problems and avoiding pitfalls. It discusses the creation of innovative paradigms, new boundaries, diversity frameworks, and operational breakthroughs emanating from technology. It also raises questions about the productivity, violence, and intrusions of technology into the personal, organizational, and social environments as we move forward. This book identifies the potential ethical, legal, and social implications of technology from electronic signatures to genetic screenings to privacy interventions to industrial applications. It raises issues, problems, and concerns arising from technology and its effects on nurturing or nullifying the foundations of life and liberty in a constitutional democracy. With the development of new tools and techniques, technology promises to make organizations more productive and efficient. Handbook of Technology Management in Public Administration identifies effective technology management approaches while balancing the repercussions of technological growth.
