Aufbauend auf einer examine der wesentlichen Umweltfaktoren und der einzelwirtschaftlichen Besonderheiten von Krankenhäusern entwickelt André Kleinfeld das systemorientierte und radikal-konstruktivistische Konzept "Menschenorientiertes Krankenhausmanagement". Dabei zeigt er die Notwendigkeit einer ganzheitlichen Betrachtung des Menschen und eines gesellschaftlichen Verantwortungsbewusstseins auf. Das Konzept ermöglicht - auf der foundation des St. Galler Ansatzes - die breite Palette unterschiedlicher Managementaspekte im Krankenhaus zu systematisieren und zu integrieren sowie das Krankenhaus und sein administration zu positionieren. Darüber hinaus wird die praktische Anwendung des Konzeptes am Beispiel der Entwicklung eines Krankenhausleitbildes erläutert.
