27 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do we understand and also assess the health care of America? Where is health care provided? What are the characteristics of those institutions which provide it? Over the short term, how are changes in health care provisions affecting the health of the population, the cost of care, and access to care? Health Care Delivery in the United States, now in a thoroughly updated and revised 9th edition, discusses these and other core issues in the field. Under the editorship of Dr. Kovner and with the addition of Dr. James Knickman, Senior VP of Evaluation, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, leading thinkers and practitioners in the field examine how medical knowledge creates new healthcare services. Emerging and recurrent issues from wide perspectives of health policy and public health are also discussed

Factors that influence the ability to fulfill patient wishes: The health care agent's perspective by Melissa Ann Robbins( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Results. Through analysis of the data collected from the 41 agent sample, four major influential themes emerged that agents perceived as influencing the ability to fulfill patient care wishes. These themes include: (1) the need for communication--both patient-agent and agent-medical staff; (2) agent need for information (both on patient prognosis/treatment options as well as on the role of the health care agent); (3) agent personal agreement with patient health care wishes (or sharing the same philosophy toward medical intervention) and; (4) the presence of social networks for agents (both supportive as well as conflicted). Data was also analyzed by type of setting
Health benefits managers' measures of success by Camm A Epstein( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research explores how leading health benefits managers measure their success. The research was based on case studies of fourteen managers of private and public employee health benefits and Medicaid programs and predominantly located in three geographically diverse states. While all managers studied measure success in cost, dissatisfaction, quality and health status terms, variation in measuring success in satisfaction, productivity and value terms is observed. The data suggest that factors influence health benefits managers' measures of success including: purchaser type; senior managers' philosophy; the degree to which health benefits managers collaborate and integrate data with other managers; the competitiveness of the labor market; and the turnover rate of beneficiaries. This research concludes that the fit or alignment between health benefits managers' measures of success and environmental conditions is important. Success measures that are not contingent upon conditions may fail to gain support and will likely yield a poor return on investment. Demographic, economic, political and technological changes will then continue to pose significant challenges to health benefits managers

Integrated health organization: HealthPartners of Southern Arizona. A case study by Sara Oliver Briller( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this research was to study the formation and management of an integrated health organization (IHO), HealthPartners of Southern Arizona. The research focused upon the collaborative action of organizations to form an integrated system, including a professional component. The process of incorporating the professional component and the ensuing structure of the IHO were studied by comparing findings from a field research to a theory-based model, the expanded professional model (EPM) developed herein. In the EPM the technical core and the managerial level are merged and composed of clinician-led interdisciplinary teams which assume responsibility for the provision and management of health services to a prescribed population across the continuum of care. The model, derived from a synthesis of diverse conceptual perspectives as applied to IHOs, was expressed in a set of propositions. The latter in turn, provided direction to the research questions. The objectives of the research were to contribute to managerial practice in health care organizations and to derive more generalized principles as a contribution to theory
