The Drucker Institute's "Drucker Apps" Offers Key Insights on the State of the Medical Industrial Complex, Whether You're a Frustrated MD or a Patient Being Strangled by Red Tape

Claremont, CA (PRWEB) June 5, 2009 -- The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University today released its latest issue of Drucker Apps, a downloadable collection of useful insights on work and life from the world's foremost expert on organizations and effectiveness, Peter F. Drucker.

Available twice a month, Drucker Apps ties the timeless wisdom of one of the great thinkers and writers of the 20th century to the hottest issues of today, all delivered by the latest in 21st-century technology.

This installment of Drucker Apps was inspired by President Obama's call to lawmakers this week to move immediately on health-care reform legislation, saying the next couple of months are a "make-or-break" period for action. In the U.S., the quality of medical care is lacking by many measures, while costs are skyrocketing out of control. Drucker's observation that the "escalation of health-care costs is the result, in large measure, of the hospital's having become an economic monstrosity" only re-enforces the urgency behind President Obama's remarks. This edition of Drucker Apps includes:

 
  • Rx for high health costs
  • Making the most of medical IT
  • Why good management = good medicine
  • Should there be a doctor in the house?

About the Drucker Institute:
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University is a think tank and action tank whose purpose is to stimulate effective management and ethical leadership across all sectors of society. It does this, in large part, by advancing the ideas and ideals of Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management.

The Institute acts as a hub for a worldwide network of Drucker Societies, volunteer-driven organizations that are using Drucker's teachings to bring about positive change in their local communities.

In addition, the Institute maintains a digital archive of Drucker's papers; undertakes research that builds on Drucker's writings; offers an annual $100,000 prize for nonprofit innovation; produces curricular material that distills Drucker's decades of leading-edge thinking; applies Drucker's work to current events (including through a regular online column in BusinessWeek by Institute Executive Director Rick Wartzman); presents a slide show exploring the "Responsibility Gap" - society's collective failure to be good and ethical stewards of our resources, people and institutions; and hosts visiting fellows with Drucker-like insights and values.

The Institute is a close affiliate of the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, which is training the next generation of effective managers and ethical leaders for all sectors of society. To learn more, visit www.drucker.cgu.edu.
