Delivering Health Care in America, Seventh Edition is the most current and comprehensive overview of the basic structures and operations of the U.S. health system—from its historical origins and resources, to its individual services, cost, and quality. Using a unique “systems” approach, the text brings together an extraordinary breadth of information into a highly accessible, easy-to-read resource that clarifies the complexities of health care organization and finance while presenting a solid overview of how the various components fit together.
With updated data and figures throughout, the new seventh edition is a thorough revision that highlights many new trends in health care; examines current challenges in cost, access, and quality; and explores the legacy of Obamacare and the future of health care reform in view of the new presidency.
