I used this book as a textbook for a junior-level undergrad course I taught entitled Health Systems Administration. It provides an excellent overview to our U.S. health care system and covers basic material such as how medical education, ambulatory care and health care personnel needs currently are addressed and likely changes in the future. I anticipate using this text again when I teach the course.

My class required the 7th edition. I found that purchasing the 6th edition (at a much lower price) worked for my class. It first I was skeptical having the earlier version, so I emailed the publisher, asked and received the 7th edition updates for free. Works for me!

One of the most informative,comprehensive and up to the minute books on healthcare organization and delivery, should be required for every congressman and senator dealing with the current issues of healthcare. and anyone who is learning or who has any interest at all in current healthcare issues.

Esteemed and Distinguished Authors: Harry A. Sultz DDS,MPH Professor and Emeritus of Social and Preventive Medicine at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Scineces, as well as Dean Emeritus of Health Related Professions, and Kristina M. Young, MS, instructor at the University at Buffalo, graduate instructor at the School of Public Health and Health Professions, State University of New York. graduate instructor at Canisius College of Buffalo in the Department of Health and Human Services. and executive director of the Western New Your Public Health Alliance, Inc.

Mr. Sultz has been an expert consultant to several governmental agencies for many years and can be considered as one of the most qualified spokesman for healthcare issues in the entire United States. His impressinve and extensive research background merits him a distinguished place as one of the true chiefs in his field.

a very precise and complete descriptive history of U.S. healthcare,from its beginning, into the present, and dealving wholeheartedly into the future of healthcare in America. Captures the very heartbeat of the U.S. healthcare system. Truly a five star, thumbs up, must read book for everyone.

This book is hard to read. I would rather have a book that is not filled with extra large words, nominalizations and third person perspective. Here is an example:

Policy makers and care managers assert that physicians' expressed concern over quality is a way to resist scrutiny and accountability without regard for economic efficiency.

And another:

In spite of its impressive accomplishments, the American health care system exhibits inexplicable contradictions in objectives, unwarranted variations in performance, effectiveness, and efficiency, and long-standing difficulties in its relationships with the public and with governments.

Can you imagine paying $64.95 for this book if you were a student and had to buy it? Why must academics write this way!?!?!

Thank goodness I only paid $10 for the used version.
