"Jonas and Kovner's Health Care Delivery in the United States is one of the stronger health policy texts on the market. Readers and instructors looking for an up-to-date, broad-based overview of US health policy should strongly consider using the book."--The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) (From reviews of the 10th Edition.) "Health care managers, practitioners, and students must both operate as effectively as they can the daunting and continually evolving system at hand and identify opportunities for reform advances Health Care Delivery in the US has been an indispensable companion to those preparing to manage this balance. The present edition demonstrates once again why this volume has come to be so prized. It takes the long view - charting recent developments in health policy, and putting them side-by-side with descriptions and analysis of existing programs in the US and abroad." Sherry Glied, PhD Dean and Professor of Public Service, NYU Wagner From the Foreword Named a 2013 Doody's Medical Reviews Essential Purchase! This fully updated and revised 11th edition of a highly esteemed survey and analysis of health care delivery in the U.S. keeps pace with the rapid changes that are reshaping our system. Fundamentally, this new edition presents the realities that impact our nation's achievement of the so-called Triple Aim: better health and better care at a lower cost. It addresses challenges and responses to the Accountable Care Act, the implementation of Obamacare, and many new models of care designed to replace outmoded systems. Contributions by leading scholars, practitioners, and educators within population health and medical care present the most up-to-date evidence-based information on health disparities, vulnerable populations, and immigrant health; nursing workforce challenges; new information technology; preventative medicine; emerging approaches to control health care costs, and much more. Designed for graduate and advanced undergraduate students of health care management and administration and public health, the text addresses all of the complex core issues surrounding our health care system in a strikingly readable and accessible format. Contributors provide an in-depth and objective appraisal of why and how we organize health care the way we do, the enormous impact of health-related behaviors on the structure, function, and cost of the health care delivery system, and other emerging and recurrent issues in health policy, health care management, and public health. The 11th edition features the writings of such luminaries as Michael Gusmanno, Carolyn Clancy, Joanne Spetz, Nirav Shah, Sherry Glied, Michael Sparer, and Christy LeMak, among others. Chapters include key words, learning objectives and competencies, discussion questions, case studies, and additional resources. Included for instructors is a Manual, Power Point Slides, Syllabus, Test Bank, Image Bank, Supplemental e-chapter on the ACA, and a transition guide bridging the 10th and 11th editions.

Now in its second edition, Social and Behavioral Science for Health Professionals has been revised to further emphasize the ways in which medical, nursing, and allied health education are increasingly integrating social and behavioral science into their curricula. The expansion of courses in various professional programs to include fields like sociology and psychology attests to this shift, as do the most recent core competencies and content standards articulated by the major accrediting bodies in these fields. Among a range of insights from medical sociology, the authors have also included a chapter on bioethics; a summary of the history of medicine and the emergence of modern health care practice; a discussion of interviewing strategies that emerge from the counseling literature; and detailed material on behavior change that more typically resides in psychology. Together, these cross-disciplinary social science insights respond to the needs of both current and future practitioners who are increasingly seeking this material in their fields of study and practice. In recognition of the shift to include the social and behavioral sciences in medicine, nursing, and allied health curricula, this edition provides information directly related to the core competencies articulated by the following accrediting bodies: AAMC (allopathic medicine) AACOM (osteopathic medicine) ADEA (dentistry) CODA (dentistry) ARC-PA (physician assistants) AACN (nursing) ACPE (pharmacy) CCE (chiropractic)
