“This book is a ‘must read’ for policymakers, administrators, clinicians, or citizens wanting a guide to our healthcare system―which is currently neither healthy, caring, nor a system! Experts discuss a variety of issues such as financial incentives, information management and uses of the Internet, and special issues pertaining to diverse populations. The editors are to be thanked for this practical and most timely volume.” - Michael F. Hoyt, PhD, Author, Brief Therapy and Managed Care, Some Stories are Better than Others, and Brief Psychotherapies: Principles and Practice
