    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.
