Accountability and Responsibility in Health Care:Issues in Addressing an Emerging Global Challenge

Edited by Bruce Rosen, Avi Israeli and Stephen Shortell

in World Scientific Books from World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte. Ltd.

Abstract: Serious scholarly analyses of the types and roles of accountability in health care first appeared in the late 1980s. That issue, along with the related issue of responsibility in health care, has continued to interest policymakers, analysts and scholars ever since. Indeed, there has been a renewed surge of interest in recent years, with growing attention to the notion of accountable care organizations in the US, clinical audits in the UK, and governance as stewardship in many other countries. Accountability and responsibility in health care was also the theme of a major international conference organized by the Israel National Institute for Health Policy Research, which was held in Jerusalem in 2009.
