Overview

Health Care Management and the Law: Principles and Applications engages students who will be leading and shaping twenty-first century health care organizations. It raises questions about health law issues such as emergence of the U.S. as a player in the global health care industry, innovative new approaches to the payer/provider model, and the future of tailored therapeutics. The text provides a comprehensive overview of health law, which is relevant to both undergraduate students seeking the basic management skills required to work in health care organizations, and graduate students currently working in health care organizations. The text is divided into thirteen broad parts ranging from an overview of specific health laws and affordable health care to producers of medical products and the future of health care in the U.S. Health Care Management and the Law concludes with a summary of improved medical technologies and the future of personalized health care. The technology-enhanced learning tools that accompany the text are available in multiple formats to fit individual readers' learning preferences, including an online learning management system with a test generator, study notes, Web links, threaded discussion forums, and additional assignments; an instructor's resource CD with PowerPoint presentations, Exam View test bank, instructor's manual, and syllabus templates; and a student study guide.

Description: This book presents a basic understanding of the U.S. healthcare system, health laws, health care, the pharmaceutical industry, and healthcare challenges, with a strong ethical underpinning.
Purpose: This book is intended to bridge research and practice, and reflect new, real-world knowledge of the healthcare industry and government agencies. In addition, it is designed to engage students who will be the future of healthcare organizations, by challenging them as critical thinkers and providing the necessary knowledge to make difficult but necessary decisions.
Audience: The authors direct this book at undergraduate students seeking the basic management skills required for working in healthcare organizations, but it also will be useful for graduate students across various disciplines and current practitioners in medicine and the law.
Features: The 39 chapters are organized into 13 parts that provide an overview of specific health laws and discuss topics such as access to healthcare, affordable healthcare, producers of medical products, improving the quality of healthcare, and the healthcare system's response to new technologies. There are supplements available such as a student study guide, as well as instructor resources including PowerPoints, syllabus templates, and a test bank. The book is strongly grounded in real-world applications as evidenced by the inclusion of court cases, law notes, law facts, and moral dilemmas. The material is timely, fact-based, and enlightening.
