From the Paper:

"Strategic planning, performance improvement and information systems are certainly not unique to the health care industry, but because human lives are involved, these issues are particularly relevant to health care providers today. Although strategic planning, performance improvement and information systems are discrete, they are inextricably interrelated and fundamental to the delivery of quality health care services. An analysis of this interrelationship was selected as the topic for this study based on the perspective that strategic planning, performance improvement and information systems have demonstrated their ability to make the administration of health care more efficient for the practitioner and more effective for the patient when applied in integrated and meaningful ways. The scope of the study extends to an examination of this interrelationship in tertiary health care facilities as well as other health care facilities such as clinics and other community-based resources. A summary of the research and important findings are provided in the conclusion."
