As the synopsis view states: “In a clear, cohesive format, Delivering Health Care in America provides a comprehensive overview of the basic structures and operations of the US health system—from its historical origins and resources, to its individual services, cost, and quality.” There’s really no better way to describe it. I used this book as a primer in my masters course for healthcare administration. It’s thorough, well-written, understandable, and answers your questions regarding the healthcare system in the U.S., as well as touching upon the health care in other countries. I highly recommend it!
