Organizational diagnosis: a six-box model
Efforts by the Department of Health and Human Services to detect and eliminate Medicare fraud and waste could be helped by using the Six-Box Model of organizational diagnosis. Developed by Marvin R. Weisbord, a skilled nursing facility can be evaluated by examining its purposes, structure, quality of relationships, rewards for performance, leadership, and appropriateness of systems and technology. Acting on this diagnosis over a two-year period should permit staff members to adjust to change.

Report seeks prevention as anti-infection weapon
Infectious diseases have not been conquered and malaria and tuberculosis have surged in cases, according to a report by the Worldwatch Institute. Approximately 33% of the global population or 16.5 million people died of infectious diseases in 1993. Surging population growth, poor preventive health care, polluted air and water and rampant poverty have contributed to these mortality figures.
