Summary

The health care field is currently experiencing a great deal of change, including advances in medical technology, the development of new health care financing mechanisms, and the transformation of organizational arrangements.

This text studies the health care system in the US, and selected other countries, through the lens of economics and policy. It presents numerous real-world examples and biographies of key figures in order to help students to grasp the importance and relevance of health reform and health policy issues. The book conveys the essence of current reform issues in the US, and places them in a global comparative context.

This accessible book will be key reading for advanced undergraduates in public health and students in health-related graduate courses, including those that come to the subject without much prior knowledge of health economics or other policy methods.
