Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William R. Hendee, PhD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This book describes various approaches, methodologies, and issues related to direct contracting for healthcare services between purchasers and providers. Through this process, intermediaries such as managed care organizations and payers are bypassed in an effort to lower healthcare costs without compromising quality.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to provide healthcare executives with an understanding of the concept, process, and ramifications of direct contracting for healthcare services. This purpose is well suited to the current healthcare environment and is achieved well in this text, intended as an introduction to the topic.
Audience: This book is intended for healthcare executives, but its study will benefit anyone interested in direct contracting of healthcare services. The authors are experienced healthcare executives who have extensive experience as authors. They are credible authorities on the subject matter of the book.
Features: The book contains many bulleted paragraphs and uses other format techniques to make the short text (98 pages) easy and quick to read. There is no index. The final chapter describes four case studies of direct contracting arrangements in four different states. References are few in number and are largely from the non-peer-reviewed literature. The entire book can be read easily in a single sitting.
Assessment: This book is a simple and easy-to-read introduction to the concept and process of direct contracting for healthcare services between provider and purchaser. The four case studies in the final chapter are particularly helpful in understanding direct contracting. The book is recommended for persons unfamiliar with direct contracting and who desire an introductory text that can be read in a couple of hours.
