Read more excerpts from the review:
"A broad overview of the U.S. healthcare system begins the book, which then dives into the major influences that shape healthcare in the U.S., covering such topics as health information technology, medical education, financing healthcare, the role of governments, research, the future of healthcare, etc. The book also comes with an access code for a companion website that enables readers to further their learning with interactive exercises.
Although this is intended to serve as an introductory textbook for students in public health, medicine, pharmacy and allied health, it is also a great source of information for anyone who has an interest in the organization of healthcare in the U.S. The authors and contributors have extensive experience that spans the fields of medicine, public health, academia, research, and public policy.
With the constant changes in the U.S. healthcare system, this update is needed to provide an up-to-date introduction to healthcare as well as the forces (e.g., political, social, professional, and economic) that shape it."
