Abstract

New approaches to resource allocation are providing healthcare managers with ways to meet budget pressures while maximizing benefit to patients and populations. But putting these approaches in place often involves significant organizational change to which some degree of resistance must be expected. The authors have seen seven common objections raised time and again. Here, we offer our best advice on how healthcare leaders can anticipate and respond proactively to these challenges.
