Jonas and Kovner's health care delivery in the United States by Anthony R Kovner( Book )

29 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,631 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

Health care delivery in the United States by Steven Jonas( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Dr. Steven Jonas and his coauthors do much to remedy the lack of basic texts conveying the knowledge required by present and future decision makers in the health care system. The book is basically descriptive in nature, examining the various elements in the delivery system and elucidating their interactions; it succeeds in describing this labyrinthine system lucidly and comprehensively. It does not neglect the economic ramifications of an industry that is now second only to defense in the Gross National Product, nor the political controversies raging over accountability and the right to health care. Importantly, the book is up to date in terminology, and thus will help meet the urgent need of health workers to communicate with one another and with the public at large

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The integration process of a hospital, a health plan and two physician organizations into an integrated system was historically and contextually analyzed. The integration process involved organizational transformation and parallel reframing of both the managerial and the physician cultures. The emerging IHO is an organically structured, team-based system, with diverse yet co-aligned sub-cultures. Organizational innovations exemplifying the EPM at the inpatient, System and community levels were also described. The EPM is suggested as a model that can contribute to clinical integration and confer competitive advantage upon the organization that successfully adopts it
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 6 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
