Is the prospective reader interested in a quick survey of the American health care system? Then this book would probably be of value to you. Does one want a detailed exposition of that system? This would not work so well for that purpose.

This volume covers the waterfront.

The first set of chapters provides a good background: characteristics of the healthcare system, general perspectives on health care delivery (including cultural vales and what we mean by health), a history of the system, and so on.

Other central issues are covered chapter by chapter. Examples of the coverage: the role of technology, healthcare finance, managed care, long-term care, cost-access-quality (all three covered in one chapter leaves actual details thinly covered, but it does provide an entree to these linked concerns), health policy, and the future of the healthcare system. Other issues are covered as well.

All in all, a helpful volume if you want a quick overview of the complexity of the healthcare system. ...more

A nice overview of the US health system. I wouldn't recommend for folks who already have a basic understanding of the structure and current problems. The chapter on healthcare reform is rudimentary. Too basic.

I have the final for this class in one hour!

I think this book was very good for my class on the Health Care System of the United States and provided material that was really relevant and useful for my assignments. It was a little dense at the beginning, mainly because I have little background knowledge about the health care system, but the background was eventually provided in class.

Overall I definitely recommend it for anyone who is interested in learning more about health care here in the I have the final for this class in one hour!

Is the textbook from a class I took. We read all 14 chapters very informative about how health care started.

This is a somewhat shallow overview of the US health care system, with some references to systems in other countries. It does a good job of introducing terminology and current issues, but does not provide any information on the federal agencies that provide regulations other than mentioning them. In addition, the history is so brief, that one does not get a true understanding of how things developed or why. This book is more appropriate to an undergraduate audience than a graduate one.

I really enjoyed this as a textbook for my class this semester. It was very informative and not as boring as other texts I have been required to read.

I like this textbook. It was really relevant to today's discussion on health care and offered an unbiased approach to the ACA.
