5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Steven A. Peterson TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 13, 2012
Format: Paperback
Is the prospective reader interested in a quick survey of the American health care system? Then this book would probably be of value to you. Does one want a detailed exposition of that system? This would not work so well for that purpose.

This volume covers the waterfront.

The first set of chapters provides a good background: characteristics of the healthcare system, general perspectives on health care delivery (including cultural vales and what we mean by health), a history of the system, and so on.

Other central issues are covered chapter by chapter. Examples of the coverage: the role of technology, healthcare finance, managed care, long-term care, cost-access-quality (all three covered in one chapter leaves actual details thinly covered, but it does provide an entree to these linked concerns), health policy, and the future of the healthcare system. Other issues are covered as well.

All in all, a helpful volume if you want a quick overview of the complexity of the healthcare system.

*Unrelated to the textbook: Amazon does not include the new chapter pdf about healthcare reform. This must be purchased from the publisher. I believe it was $14.99*

This textbook was enjoyable to read and informative. A lot of very useful information for anyone interesting in the inner workings of the health care/insurance system.

I was really impressed with the condition of this book. I was also able to still use the online resource code which gave me additional resources to go along with the text.
