Most widely held works by Arnold Birenbaum
Wounded profession : American medicine enters the age of managed care by Arnold Birenbaum( )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the mid-'9Os, consumer backlash and increased utilization of the courts to force change helped stimulate a reexamination of public health policy and new legislation to broaden coverage and flexibility. Birenbaum examines where the interests of consumers and professionals have dovetailed and where they differ. He considers the health care system's future and suggested ways the system must be adjusted to provide better and wider coverage at reasonable costs. This volume is essential reading for scholars, students, and professionals in the medical field, as well as general readers concerned with health care issues."--Jacket

Managed care : made in America by Arnold Birenbaum( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on how a distinctly American product - managed care - got its start, how it works, and what needs to be adjusted in the future. The unprecedented integration of services in health maintenance organizations (HMOs) is better for the consumer, yet, at the same time, results in less control by the consumer and provider. Making the relationship between consumers and providers less trustworthy is the shadowy figure of the third-party payer, who, by exercising control, is attempting to keep costs down

A survey of the employment status of mentally retarded adults in New York City by Association for the Help of Retarded Children( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The records of 1,800 educable mentally retarded students who terminated schooling in the New York City public schools from 1960-1963 were examined to study their employment history and present job status. From the total population a representative sample of 383 was selected for such variables as sex, ethnic group membership, iq level, and socioeconomic status; these subjects were interviewed at home by trained social service workers. More than half of the subjects were employed, but 62 percent of the men held a job compared to 31 percent of the women. Most of the employed had full-time jobs, and their pay was generally equal to the minimum wage. One hundred and fifty-one were given individual psychological evaluations, and the results indicated that 40 percent of the subjects no longer fell below the cut-off point of an iq of 75. Despite the fact that free resources for training, counseling and placement through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (dvr) were available, less than 40 percent of the interviewed sample and less than 20 percent of the total population were known to the dvr. Caucasians applied to the dvr with twice the frequency of Negroes and three times the frequency of Puerto Ricans. (Bc)
