Summary

Kenman L. Wong's timely book addresses issues raised by the new intersections of business and medicine with an ethical assessment of emerging health care arrangements. By focusing on organizational ethics, he offers an integrative framework that seeks to balance patient, societal, and corporate interests. To avoid overly simplistic solutions, Wong compares managed care, traditional for-service arrangements, and other proposed health care reform options such as rationing programs and medical savings accounts based upon principles of fairness.
