Editorial Reviews

Review

"The most comprehensive, lucid, focused, and relevant textbook of applied epidemiology for health system managers written to date. Fos and Fine have produced a volume useful as both a textbook and a reference for the student or practioner, public or private. It should be in every health manager's library."(James Banta, adjunct professor, The George Washington University) (James Banta, adjunct professor, The George Washington University)

"...an enjoyable and readable primer on epidemiology....The authors, both of whom have outstanding credentials and experience in this area, should be credited with an excellent, basic textbook..." (Doody Publishing, Inc.)

From the Inside Flap

A Key Resource for Health Care Professionals for Harnessing the Power of Population Health ManagementIn clear, easy-to-understand terms, Designing Health Care for Populations reveals how the science of epidemiology—the study of the causes, distribution, and control of disease in a population—can be implemented to lead all health care organizations. The authors, experts in health care management, decision science, and epidemiology, offer health care managers an essential resource for understanding the common bond between clinical medicine and the management of health care facilities. The book is filled with step-by-step guidelines for applying the discipline of epidemiology to the full spectrum of management operations. Tapping into the knowledge, information, and guidelines in this book, health care professionals can learn to apply the principles of managerial epidemiology to help them achieve clinical improvement, integrate health care services, organize providers into networks, and evaluate and document organizational quality.

My students find the book easy to read and understand but are frustrated by the multiple errors and missing data in Chapter five data examples and end of chapter questions.

Format: Hardcover
The book I received was an old outdated edition and did not match the ISBN or the picture on the website, very deceiving!
