Managing Health: An International Perspective

Front Cover
Wiley, Sep 9, 2003 - Medical - 460 pages
Managing Health provides students and professionals in health care systems with an international perspective on tools and mechanisms that have been used to manage cost, care, and health of populations. This important resource contains eleven teaching cases that professionals and students can use to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges of health care reform. It provides the opportunity for professionals to develop solutions to real-world situations.

Responding to the need for a global health management textbook, Managing Health is rich in cases relating to health programs and health plans in North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia, and South America. The problems-and their complexity-that the cases illustrate, are sure to be of value to both health services students and practitioners. While no country has a perfect approach, Managing Health offers those engaging in the comparative analysis of international health systems an opportunity to develop more effective solutions for our own problems.

A separate Instructor's Guide with chapter-by-chapter discussion topics and text questions is available to faculty. To download a complimentary PDF of the Instructor's Guide go to www.josseybass.com/go/kane.
