Overview

This imaginative book is a fictionalized account of clinician Dr. Evelyn Bloom and businessman Adam Wilder, who attempt to run a start-up managed behavioral healthcare company in a highly ethical manner. As the characters grapple with many of the questions and crises that arise in creating and operating such an enterprise, The Ethical Way leads the reader through a dramatic maze of ethical principles and issues that characterize the managed behavioral healthcare environment today. Throughout the book a blue-ribbon panel of industry experts, including consumer advocates, managed care executives, providers, government officials, medical ethicists, and legal scholars, offers insightful and wise commentary on the story. Together the author and the experts have created an up-to-date, practical, results-oriented portrait of contemporary behavioral healthcare ethics.

The book contains no figures.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Unusual, entertaining, and informative. An excellent summary of the ethical issues that one would confront in managed behavioral healthcare. I can think of no better way to be introduced to the issues." —American Association of Psychiatric Administrators Newsletter

"Helpful and unique in its even-handed, balanced approach. I'm delighted to have such a wonderful resource available." —Barbara Okun, professor, Northeastern University

"If we all must go in the lion's den—and its hard to escape—then this Daniel in "The Ethical Way" may be as good a guide as it gets. We appreciate someone of such sanity writing openly in these tightlipped times." —Bill and Mary Alice Houghton, editors, The Mental Health Canary: The Voice of Psychotherapy

"Moffic is a clear-thinking, important contributor to the field of healthcare delivery. He is humanistic and, as such, has written a book that not only is provocative but provides some answers to questions regarding this major system of managed behavioral healthcare." —Gene Usdin, M.D., past president, American College of Psychiatrists

"Finally, someone dares to tackle this difficult topic and does an amazingly comprehensive job bringing fairness and clarity to a many-sided issue." —Marjorie Nixon, president, The Wisconsin Coalition of Mental Health Professionals and Consumers

"The Ethical Way is a refreshing, open, well-written discussion of extremely daunting and complex issues." —Steven S. Sharfstein, M.D., president, medical director, and chief executive officer, Sheppard Pratt, and clinical professor of psychiatry, University of Maryland
