Overview

This book addresses the impact of managed care on clinical practice. In each chapter a specific area of practice is discussed by two industry leaders — a clinician and managed care executive. Also presented is a critique of managed care from the perspective of patients and families. By promoting dialogue and increasing the level of understanding between mental health care providers and managed care reviewers, Allies and Adversaries should help both to better serve patients and themselves, and to effectively contribute to the shape of the emerging mental health care system.

Incl. inpatient & outpatient services/drugs & alcohol/role of the psychiatrist/practice guidelines/ethical issues/etc.

Editorial Reviews

Readings: A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health
A useful and comprehensive review of managed care is provided here in a number of aspects, including clinical, provider, and family, each from the perspectives of a clinician and a managed care executive.
Open Minds
Allies and Adversaries delineates, in a subjective and highly readable format, the aspirations and obstacles in an evolving market.... This book offers something of a gameplan to achieving a united political front among people who often disagree on how to achieve the ubiquitous, and increasing distant, goal of universal coverage.

Booknews
Mental health clinicians and executives of managed care organizations square off (but sometimes shake hands) on such issues as inpatient services, intermediate levels of care, children, alcohol, social workers, and practice guidelines. Each chapter juxtaposes their responses to questions of what is wrong and how could it be better. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
