Health information technology (HIT) provides the umbrella framework to describe the comprehensive management of health information across computerized systems and its secure exchange between consumers, providers, government and quality entities, and insurers. Health information technology (HIT) is in general increasingly viewed as the most promising tool for improving the overall quality, safety and efficiency of the health delivery system (Chaudhry et al., 2006). Broad and consistent utilization of HIT will:...
In this process, one factor might mitigate the increase in prices: If the entrepreneur has been
successful in applying a new technology and hence produces more efficiently and hence at
lower costs than firms already in the market, he might earn some extra profits due to lower
costs even at constant prices. In this case, the innovative entrepreneur will earn the profits he
can use ex post to finance the investment. In both cases, in the end, aggregate saving again
equals aggregate investment, even if the process is slightly different.
Corporate networks in today's dynamic business environment are often comprised of many networks and

The following paragraphs present a synthesis of the development of the management control
concept in the literature. We have pointed out the existence of different trends of thought, which have
gradually evolved as organisations and markets have transformed, introducing new variables for
building efficient control systems adapted to social changes, to the process of internationalisation and
to increased market competition (Jaeger and Balinga, 1985; Neimark and Tinker, 1986).
In this article we have introduced the concept of management control based on the need for all
organisations to avail of the processes and mechanisms that enable them to create the most favourable
conditions for these organisations to attain their objectives, while at the same time ensuring an
effective and efficient use of their resources. The management control system seeks to orient in the
decision-making process and influence the behaviour of the organisation members so that their
performance increases its chances of achieving its objectives.
A central philosophy of an integrated
approach to water resources management
is that water should be managed at the
lowest appropriate level. This means taking
a basin approach where appropriate and
decentralizing decision making, usually
with increasing input and role for various
stakeholders with an interest in how water
resources are allocated and management
decisions are being made.
As funding for agricultural research becomes increasingly
scarce in many countries, research administrators have come
under heightened pressure to ensure that available resources
are used efficiently. The need to demonstrate accountability
has generated increased interest in research impacts
assessment methods and motivated a large number of
empirical studies designed to determine whether agricultural
research programs are having their intended effects.
