With hospitals challenged to resist the reductionist impetus of economically-based and commercially driven approaches to healthcare, HRMs must nevertheless recognize that these are insistent imperatives to which it must respond (Parker, 1999). Proper and appropriate accountability through PM is a key strategy for maintaining quality as a significant aspect of care. HRM has become an increasingly significant player in the design, development, implementation and management of performance. This report has examined the critical elements of HRM's role in PM in the context of the hospital environment - an environment particularly focused on improving and managing performance.
