Summary

This comprehensive introductory text describes health systems in the United States and in other countries, with emphasis on their ability to deliver goods and services, their cost, and their operation within a legal framework. Included is a discussion of such major developments as prepaid group practice, automated multiphasic health testing, national health insurance, professional standards review organizations, comprehensive health planning, and malpractice arbitration. The author underlines the salient features of the various systems by presenting and discussing advertisements for health products and services. Flow diagrams, charts, tables, and discussion questions help the reader understand the complexities and interrelationships of health care systems.
