Essentials of the U.S. health care system, 3d ed. (includes online access code)

Shi, Leiyu and Douglass A. Singh.

376 pages



Shi (Johns Hopkins U., Baltimore, Maryland) and Singh's (Indiana U.-South Bend) book is a condensed and simplified version of their standard textbook on the US health care system, Delivering Health Care in America: A Systems Approach, Fifth Edition. It covers the essential elements of US health care but leaves out much of the data and technical details of the expanded version. Its easier-to-read format makes it suitable for junior college-level basic courses in US health care and as a supplement text in advanced courses in health policy. The updated third edition features the latest health statistics and census data; information on the Healthy People 2020 initiative; new material on health care reform, alternative medicine, disparity initiatives, health centers and safety-net providers; and an online access code to a companion website.
