Duncan V. Neuhauser, Ph.D.
Editor, Nonprofit Management and Leadership
Duncan Neuhauser is the Charles Elton Blanchard M.D. Professor of Health Management emeritus at Case Western Reserve University's School of Medicine. His doctoral dissertation (University of Chicago) showed a link between good management practices and costs and quality of care in 30 nonprofit community hospitals. This resulted in the book, co-authored with Selwyn Becker, The Efficient Organization (1975). His theoretical and empirical study with Bruce Steinwald comparing nonprofit and for-profit hospitals, the first such analysis, was published in the Journal of Law and Contemporary Problems. Since then his work has been on the translation of management ideas to health and medical care, including clinical decision analysis, cost effectiveness analysis, medical technology assessment quality improvement, and statistical process control.
Neuhauser edited the monthly health services research journal Medical Care from 1983 to 1998. He was the founding editor of the health law journal Health Matrix of CWRU's School of Law, a founding member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care (Cambridge University Press), associate editor of Quality Management in Health Care, and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Health Services Research and Policy of the Royal Society of Medicine, London.
He holds a secondary professorship in organizational behavior at the Weatherhead School of Management at CWRU, a clinical professorship in nursing management at Vanderbilt University, a foreign adjunct professorship in medical management at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, and is a member of the visiting committee of Columbia University's School of Nursing. He has been a board member of several nonprofit organizations, including the International Grenfell Association, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Hough-Norwood Neighborhood Health Centers (NEON), and the Visiting Nurse Association of Greater Cleveland. A supporter of early music performances in Cleveland, he is a member of the Friends of Apollo's Fire (a baroque orchestra).
In 1983 Neuhauser was elected to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies of Science.
