The revised and updated second edition of Managing a Modern Hospital contains a judiciously compiled collection of writings on modern hospital management.

Health care has become one of the fastest growing sectors in India over the past decade. This book contains two new chapters, Customer Relationship Management, and Computer-aided Diagnosis, which highlight recent developments in the field in the last seven years. It spans a wide range of issues in modern hospital management, including:
- Waste management
- Financial management
- Maintaining medical records
- Medical audits
- Managing human resources
- Quality certification

A repository of valuable insight and information on setting up and running a modern-day hospital efficiently and as an economically viable business, the book can serve as basic text and supplementary reading for courses in hospital management. It will also be of interest to hospital administrators in government and private health care institutions, directors of nursing homes, medical practitioners involved with hospital administration as well as entrepreneurs in the health care business, consultants and researchers.
