Overview

A Roadmap of the U.S. Health System

This comprehensive review provides new insights into the nation?s health care system, and covers the full spectrum of health care services. It identifies up-to-the-minute trends and analyzes options for future policymaking in the wake of diminishing public confidence in past health reform initiatives.

The authors--all recognized as top researchers in the field--draw on their own investigations to address timely topics such as AIDS, women's health, long-term care, and prevention. In addition, they examine important issues including ethics, cost, quality, and access, and tackle controversial subjects such as malpractice, and regulated versus competitive systems.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Arnold D. Kaluzny, PhD, MHA (University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Public Health)
Description: This book is a compilation of invited papers on the management and policy issues facing the United States.
Purpose: It is designed to provide a single source and comprehensive yet readable account of these issues, with specific reference to the challenges that followed the defeat of the healthcare reform initiative of 1992-1993.
Audience: The book is intended for a number of audiences, including students, health services researchers, policy analysts, health care managers, and practitioners and providers of health services. Each chapter provides a conceptual overview or problem statement, documentation of the present issues and relevant literature, and some designation of the future challenges or issues that need to be addressed.
Features: The book is divided into five sections, with each section containing two or more chapters. The first three sections are on the three key components of health policy: access, cost, and quality. The fourth section addresses special populations, with individual chapters devoted to long-term care, AIDS, children's and families' health, women's health, and the homeless. The fifth and final section concerns directions for change with chapters on hospital price competition, regulation, lessons from other countries, the role of prevention and personal health, medical malpractice, and the ethical issues in public health and health services management.
Assessment: The clearly presented material is well documented and illustrated, and the objective of being a "single, comprehensive yet readable account of the issues facing the United States in health care policy and management" is met.

Offers insights into the composition and workings of all health care services in the US, outlining trends and future policy options. Begins by addressing three key components of health care policy: improving access, controlling costs, and ensuring quality. A number of chapters are devoted to segments of the population with special needs for health care: the elderly, the growing HIV/AIDs community, children, the homeless, and low-income women. Substandard paper makes this the lightest textbook in circulation. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
