Description

By: Anthony R. Kovner, PhD (Editor) James R. Knickman, PhD (Editor) Victoria D. Weisfeld, MPH

Leading thinkers, educators, and practitioners provide an in-depth and objective appraisal of why and how we organize health care the way we do. Jonas and Kovner's Health Care Delivery in the United States, 10th Edition discusses the enormous impact of health-related behaviors on the structure, function, and cost of the health care delivery system, and other emerging and recurrent issues in health policy, health care management, and public health. This 10th edition of a classic text for graduate and advanced undergraduate students presents the critical issues and core challenges surrounding our health care system.

Key Features:

  • Includes major provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act of 2010
  • Each chapter includes these special features: key concepts; extensive mapping resources; key words; learning objectives; discussion questions; and case studies
  • Covers the newest models of care, such as Accountable Care Organizations and Integrated Delivery Systems
  • Examines new ways of conceptualizing and assessing health care, including comparative effectiveness research
  • Features contributions by leading scholars and key figures within the U.S. health care system, including John Billings, JD; Carolyn M. Clancy, MD; C. Tracy Orleans, PhD; and Michael S. Sparer, PhD, JD
  • Contains new coverage of health reform, developing countries, population health, public health and catastrophic events, and a broadened discussion of the health care workforce

Jonas and Kovner's Health Care Delivery in the United States, 10th Edition is divided into five sections, in order to provide some coherence to this broad terrain.
