Summary

Written in an engaging, easy-to-follow style, this book exposes the audience to the breadth of the field of health care without overwhelming them with detail. This book is unique in that it combines a health perspective with a business perspective. Not only does it carry a view of healthcare as an industry and business, facing the same problems all businesses face to maintain competitive advantage in the marketplace, but it also focuses on the delivery system, and addresses the perpetual tradeoff between access, quality, and cost of services.This book is organized around the pieces that make up health care. It addresses the questions: "what is this business called health care?", "how do we pay for health care?", "who provides health care?", "where and how is health care provided?", and "what else is included?". These questions are answered in the four parts of the book, in a total of 14 chapters.KEY MARKET:Professionals in the allied health field.
