The seventh edition of Introduction to Health Services builds upon its reputation as a classic book written by nationally recognized authors. This new edition addresses the increasing pressure to improve the efficiency of the nation's health care system and to provide an adequate level of health care for all Americans. The seventh edition reflects the revolutionary changes in the practice of clinical medicine, government policy, information technology, and health care cost containment. In-depth information in the areas of health care finance, health care access, managed care, and insurance and home health is also provided. Research and statistics throughout make this book the premier reference for understanding all the services that compose the health care landscape.
