Overview

The Health Care Dilemma should be of interest to local and international health care constituencies, including leaders of health care delivery networks, academic professionals, students, and government and ministerial authorities globally with interest in health care systems and policy development.

The patient case studies collected in this book provide first-hand accounts of health care delivery in multiple settings in a variety of national and local systems. These accounts, focusing on real experiences and real patients, transcend the rhetoric of political debate about health care delivery. The cases offer lessons for how we might draw on the virtues of other health care systems, understand strengths and shortcomings in our current system, and work toward potential improvements.

All royalties derived from the sale of this book are contributed to the Harvard Macy Institute in support of the worldwide community of health care professionals innovating through education.
