Abstract

Systems Thinking for Healthcare Delivery Hospital

The health care system can be defined as a complex system that involves patient, clinicians, manufacture and other, all of that developed in the organization of people, institutions, and resources that deliver health care services to meet the health needs of the target population, its true that the delivery of care to the target population is often very complex and unstandardized which leads to reducing health care delivery safety. In 2005 the joint report from the National Academy of Engineering and Institute to Medicine advocated the application of system thinking to improve the delivery of health care. (Proctor, 2005) Systems thinking can be defined by providing a strong language to communicate and investigate complex issues, some looked at its a way to an enterprise aimed at seeing how things are connected to each other within some notion of a whole entity.
