Health systems operate by providing healthcare with the guidance of policies and procedures to meet the needs of the patients. The health system monitors the output and makes changes according to the patient and employee feedback. The purpose of this paper is to show that healthcare systems can use the system theory model to resolve problems within subsystems of an organization.
