Question description

Many of the reasons why we need to provide flexible and adaptable has already been addressed in previous chapters of this book. Some of theses reasons include the following:

  • Unpredictable healthcare environment with fluctuating demand driven by changing reimbursement, new regulations and media attention; 
  • The blending and melding of many diagnostic and treatment modality with advances in technology;
  • Staffing shortages in many specialties that necessitate the cross-training of staff and the creation of new job descriptions;
  • Electronic information management that eliminates the need for physical proximity; 
  • Limited access to capital that requires ever more efficient utilization of all resources, including staff, equipment, and space(Hayward, 2006).

Why is flexibility is important??
