Service Management in Health and Wellness (Editor Jay Kandampully)

New Book:

Today, more than ever before, people desire to look and feel better, to slow the effects of aging, manage stress, and/or prevent age related illness.

 
This growing social phenomenon is the so called wellness generation.

 
Service Management in Health and Wellness Services examines the
growing significance of the wellness concept as a feature of the health
care industry. This new paradigm shift in the composition of health
care and the subsequent changes in the needs and expectations of
health care customers are transforming health care into a largely
customer-driven service sector.

 
Designed specifically for practitioners and students in the health
and wellness industry, Service Management in Health and Wellness
Services addresses various aspects from a services management
perspective. In doing so, the publication reinforces that service
management approaches can be used to effectively manage health
and wellness services to provide customers with superior service
and value. Those who conceptualize and manage the health care
offering as essentially a ‘service’ offering will gain an advantage in
the understanding of, and ability to deliver, service excellence. These
concepts cover the full gamut of the health service and wellness
industry – including operations, marketing, human resources, and
more.

 
Service Management in Health and Wellness Services provides a
detailed account of the critical services-management concepts that
have direct application in the health and wellness industry. Using case
examples, each chapter seeks to illustrate how these concepts can be
used effectively to gain customer loyalty, achieve market leadership in
the health and wellness industry.
