Health Care Economics
Heath Care Economics, now in its 6th Edition, is primarily used as a resource for courses in health economics. It assumes little economics training and it provides an economic approach to understanding health care issues. New to this edition is an appendix to Chapter One that reviews the basics of economic supply and demand analysis. Also included is a new chapter on the Pharmaceutical Industry, which includes the most current policy issues being discussed and demonstrates the use of economics in analyzing this industry. The book is unique compared to its competition in its comprehensive discussion of the various topics covered, and the number of topics it covers. It also contains many figures and tables to illustrate economic analysis and covers major topics in health care today such as understanding the different sectors of medical care and issues dealing with financing health care services and national health insurance.
