Health Care Regulation in America: Complexity, Confrontation, and Compromise

Health Care Regulation in America: Complexity, Confrontation, and Compromise Lowest new price: $49.95
Lowest used price: $21.55
List price: $65.00
Author: Robert I. Field
Brand: Robert I Field

Regulation shapes all aspects of America's fragmented health care industry, from the flow of dollars to the communication between physicians and patients. It is the engine that translates public policy into action. While the health and lives of patients, as well as almost one-sixth of the national economy depend on its effectiveness, health care regulation in America is bewilderingly complex. Government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels direct portions of the industry, but hundreds of private organizations do so as well. Some of these overseers compete with one another, some conflict, and others collaborate. Their interaction is as important to the provision of health care as are the laws and rules they implement.

Health Care Regulation in America is a guide to this regulatory maze. It succinctly recaps the past and present conflicts that have guided the oversight of each industry segment over the past hundred years and explains the structure of regulation today. To make the system comprehensible, this book also presents the sweep of regulatory policy in the context of the interests, values, goals, and issues that guide it. Chapters cover the process of regulation and each key area of regulatory focus - professionals, institutions, financing arrangements, drugs and devices, public health, business relationships, and research.

In a uniquely American way, the system thrives on confrontation between competing interests but survives by engendering compromise. Robert Field shows that health care regulation is an inexorable force that nurtures as well as restricts the enterprise of American health care. For the student, practitioner, executive, policy analyst, or concerned citizen, this book is an invaluable guide to the policy, politics, and practice of an industry that directly touches us all.

The Body Silent: The Different World of the Disabled Lowest new price: $9.00
Lowest used price: $1.99
List price: $16.95
Author: Robert F. Murphy
Brand: Murphy, Robert F.

"The most powerful book of its kind I've ever read.... Extraordinary powers of observation, generalization, and depth."―Oliver Sacks, author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat

Winner of the Columbia University Lionel Trilling Award. Robert Murphy was in the prime of his career as an anthropologist when he felt the first symptom of a malady that would ultimately take him on an odyssey stranger than any field trip to the Amazon: a tumor of the spinal cord that progressed slowly and irreversibly into quadriplegia. In this gripping account, Murphy explores society's fears, myths, and misunderstandings about disability, and the damage they inflict. He reports how paralysis―like all disabilities―assaults people's identity, social standing, and ties with others, while at the same time making the love of life burn even more fiercely.
