Fourth Edition Coming This Fall! Click here to learn more! In a clear, cohesive format, Delivering Health Care in America provides a comprehensive overview of the basic structures and operations of the US health system-from its historical origins and resources, to its individual services, cost, and quality. Using a unique "systems" approach, it brings together an extraordinary breadth of information into a highly accessible, easy-to-read text that clarifies the complexities of health care organization and finance, while presenting a solid overview of how the various components fit together. Now in its third edition, Delivering Health Care in America features the latest available data and research findings to provide the most current information on the foundations, structural features, past and current trends, and major issues pertaining to the U.S. health care delivery system. "Describing the US health services system is no easy feat. In one liftable volume, the authors cover the conceptual basis for the system; its historical origins; the structures of ambulatory care, inpatient care, and other important services; the translation of these structures into health services themselves; and the manifestation of their impact on costs and qualityhellip; This book thus provides a point of departure for understanding a system that the world views with interest because of its heavy focus on "the market" as the organizing force." -Barbara Starfield, MD, MPH, University Distinguished Service Professor Johns Hopkins University
