Evidence-Based-Management in Healthcare
Evidence Based Management (EBM) is about removing emotion, opinion, bias and personal experience from decision-making. Evidence Based Management is a business model whereby facts, data and verification are the only tools considered.

Now, US healthcare has 5,000 hospitals filled with clinical managers who lack sophisticated business skills. As a nation we do not have the proper skill-mix for the task at hand. The task is to lower costs, increase outcomes and improve the public perception of our care. This article offers a quick and simple solution illustrating Evidence Based Management.
