Authors, Delivering Health Care in America, 7th Edition (Available Oct. 13, 2017)
With this Seventh Edition, we celebrate 20 years of serving instructors, students, policymakers, and others, both at home and overseas, with up-to-date information on a dynamic United States health care delivery system. Much has changed and much will continue to change in the future as the nation will grapple with critical issues of access, cost, and quality. Indeed, much of the developing and developed world will also be contending with similar issues.
People in the United States, in particular, had just gotten a taste of a far-reaching health care reform with President Barack Obama’s signature Affordable Care Act (ACA), nicknamed Obamacare. The law produced mixed results that are documented in this new edition.
