Health Economics: Theories, Insights and Industry Studies based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This exceptional college level text applies economic theory to every aspect of the healthcare field. The authors¿ profound and insightful conclusions are drawn from real world examples that allow physicians, healthcare consultants, HMO managers, government officials and yes, interested students, to comprehend the implications of healthcare issues from an organizational and governmental perspective. Additionally, the authors¿ conclusions are applicable when analyzing the American macro economy in which 14% of GDP originates in the healthcare field. A more astute microeconomics text does not exist!
After several years of undergraduate business school, I can sincerely attest to the usefulness of this text. By concisely analyzing and interpreting the challenging material, Santerre and Neun transform Health Economics into a universally interpretable language. Importantly, the plethora of insights and empirical studies substantiate and enhance each chapter. This powerful text negates the need for course enhancing supplementary readings. This is one of very few texts that is worth its weight in gold!
