From the Paper:

"Improving the quality of the care provided is widely suggested in the 1990s as the solution to many of the problems being faced by health care institutions (Phipps, 1992). While medical professionals have no quarrel with striving for high quality health care, many of these individuals do tend to reject initiatives that appear to be further manifestations of codified bureaucratic machinations that likely will have no long-lasting positive impacts on the quality of health care services (Jeffer, 1991). Nevertheless, many theorists and observers both inside and outside the medical establishment suggest that a quality management program can lead to improved quality in health care (Banham, 1993)."
