Praise for past editions:
"It is not enough for a nation to have excellent medical know-how....we need to understand how to get services to people, as well as the social responsibilities and organizational challenges in delivering services. This book properly focuses attention on the challenges of the delivery of health care: how to achieve quality, efficiency, value, fairness, and universal access." -- from the foreword by Steven Schroeder, former President and Chief Executive Officer, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; Professor of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley
From the Back Cover
How do we understand and also assess the health care of America? Where is health care provided? What are the characteristics of those institutions which provide it? Over the short term, how are changes in health care provisions affecting the health of the population, the cost of care, and access to care?
Health Care Delivery in the United States, now in a thoroughly updated and revised 9th edition, discusses these and other core issues in the field. Under the editorship of Dr. Kovner and with the addition of Dr. James Knickman, Senior VP of Evaluation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, leading thinkers and practitioners in the field examine how medical knowledge creates new healthcare services. Emerging and recurrent issues from wide perspectives of health policy and public health are also discussed.
With an easy to understand format and a focus on the major core challenges of the delivery of health care, this is the textbook of choice for course work in health care, the reference for administrators and policy makers, and the standard for in-service training programs."
