Item Details

"There are many books on the U.S. healthcare system, but few have the longevity of this one. It is easy to read and straightforward in its approach to difficult subjects such as the rise of the Tea Party and how that movement has impacted healthcare. This update is certainly needed as the landscape has changed dramatically since the previous edition was published in 2007."--Doody's Medical Reviews This best-selling textbook remains the most concise and balanced introduction to the United States health care system. Providing an accessible overview of the basic components of the system, this latest edition is also entirely updated to address the health care reform bill of 2010 and subsequent changes to health care services, delivery, and financing. Like its predecessors, "Jonas' Introduction to the U.S. Health Care System" includes an overview of health care personnel, hospitals and other institutions, the federal government, financing and payment mechanisms, and managed care. It has been updated to offer insights into the 2010 health care reform bill and its resulting political and medical fallout, and a new chapter on health care system trends and consequences has been added. All students of health care administration and policy, as well as practicing health care professionals seeking a clear and concise overview of our health care system, will benefit from this resource. Key Features of the Updated Edition: Remains the most concise and balanced introduction to the U.S. health care system Entirely updated to address the 2010 health care reform bill and subsequent changes to health care services, delivery, and financing Includes new chapter on health care system trends and consequences Ideal for use in undergraduate courses on the U.S. health care system, in graduate survey courses, and in courses introducing the subject to medical students Comes with instructor materials, including PowerPoints, an instructor manual, and a test bank
