Answer preview

Health care organizations are dealing with numerous challenges. The majority of these challenges can be attributed to two primary contributory factors. The first one is the increasing challenge of meeting the needs of more aware and demanding users of health care services (Speziale, 2017). The second factor is the need to alter the internal structure to keep pace with the rapid changes within their environment (Speziale, 2017). Even though dealing with these contributory factors can be challenging, healthcare organizations can do this by coming up with a strategic management model that recognizes the changes needed for organizational growth and sustainability and supports an effective change management process.
