This text is perhaps the single most powerful reference you can have on the shelf or your desk. The explosion of health statistics and the demand for information is increasing daily. Right now, more than ever, there is an unprecedented interest in accountability. Regulators, consumer groups, government financing agencies, policy setters, health care planners and marketers live off data. In all, there isn't an individual inside or outside of the health care industry that cannot use quality data.
The Health Care Book of Lists provides quality, compiled data, and more. This text contains 338 of the most up-to-date compiled lists found anywhere. Each list provides the most current compiled data available, along with reference to sources used for collection, important definitions, caveats or qualifications where needed for better understanding and meaning, and interpretation of the data and its meaning to the health care professional.
This important new book provides the greatest amount of compiled health care data than any single source available. Already a huge hit nationwide, Health Care Book of Lists is a must for libraries, clinics, HMOs, PPOs, hospital staff and planners, healthcare marketers, as well as the individual practitioner.
