Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0692244735, Paperback)

"An astonishingly clear 'user's manual' that explains our health care system and the policies that will change it." Pauline Chen, MD - The New York Times

The 2nd edition of the best-selling practical, neutral, and readable overview of the US health care system is now available. This updated edition of the Health Care Handbook covers:

• New sections on health IT, team-based care and health care quality
• A clear summary of health policy and the Affordable Care Act
• Inpatient & outpatient health care and delivery systems
• Health insurance and the factors that make health care so expensive
• Concise summaries of 32 different health professions
• Medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and the research world
• And much, much more

The Handbook is the one-stop guide to the people, organizations and industries that make up the U.S. health care system and major issues the system faces today. It is rigorously researched and scrupulously unbiased yet written in a conversational and humorous tone that's a pleasure to read and illuminates the convoluted health care system and its many components. The Handbook is now used by hundreds of academic programs and health care companies.

Each section of the book includes an introduction to the key facts and foundations that make the health care system work along with balanced analyses of the major challenges and controversies within health care, including medical errors, government regulation, medical malpractice, and much more. Suggested readings are included for readers who wish to learn more about specific topics.

"The book succeeds in making sense of health care without opinion, bias, or dense textbook language." - Booklist
