A System Theory Approach in Management of Community Health Centers (Mid-Level Health Organizations) in India
Keywords:Community health center, Health-care delivery, Open system
Health-care delivery in India has been developed at three levels specifically, primary, secondary, and tertiary. The secondary level of health-care basically includes Community Health Centers (CHCs), constituting the First Referral Units. The health-care system is that the organization (e.g. hospital, clinic, and nursing home) that has infrastructure and completely different complementary resources to support the work and development of care teams and microsystems. In open system theory, each system and its subsystems adapt to internal and external demands and feedback. Demands external to the health-care organization cover environmental factors (e.g., labor market, legislation, and population characteristics). Health-care organizations try to use a system that is functioning in response to feedback and informational signals to counteract lacuna. The application of system theory at mid-level will enhance the further managerial promptness at this level. In this paper, we described system theory as the process of identifying the systems of health-care delivery at the CHC level and subsystems with in CHCs and its interactions with environment and other systems.
