TL;DR: An organizational perspective is being created alongside that of the individual, with considerable potential for conflict, in managed care, which represents a new level of organization in health care delivery.
Abstract: Managed care represents a profound transformation in the architecture and process of health care delivery. Whether motivated by the economics of health care and the widely perceived need for cost containment1, 2 or by the quality improvements that a systems approach potentially permits,3, 4 managed care organizations represent a new level of organization in health care delivery. Formerly the fundamental unit of health care delivery was the individual clinician whose focus was principally the individual patient. Now the fundamental unit is a health care organization, and its focus is its covered population. Thus, an organizational perspective is being created alongside that of the individual, with considerable potential for conflict.
