At risk in America : the health and health care needs of vulnerable populations in the United States by Lu Ann Aday( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This updated second edition of At Risk in America provides a detailed analysis of those key population groups most vulnerable to disease and injury in the United States today - including homeless persons, refugees and immigrants, people living with AIDS, alcohol and substance abusers, high-risk mothers and infants, victims of family or other violence, and the chronically or mentally ill. Lu Ann Aday reviews the major theories and knowledge concerning these at-risk groups and offers new approaches and methodologies for tracing the social determinants and societal influences on health. She examines the specific health needs and risks faced by these groups, their experience in the health care system, the current policies and programs that serve them, and the research and policy initiatives that might be undertaken to help reduce their vulnerability." "Drawing from the latest theoretical, empirical, and policy developments, At Risk in America, Second Edition, updates the data and sources presented in the earlier edition as well as substantially expanding the conceptual framework, research needs, and policy implications initially introduced. The book also examines emerging new trends in the health care system, such as the accelerating influence of managed care, and looks at how public health as a profession is being redefined by these forces. No other source has pulled together, in systematic fashion, such a wide array of information or identified the cross-cutting policy and research issues surrounding the increasing numbers of the at-risk population."--Jacket

This study is the first comprehensive and systematic effort of its kind to develop a conceptual and methodological approach to gathering data on this new population of technology-assisted children. The ultimate outcomes examined were the ventilator-assisted child's quality of life, the stress and adaptation experienced by the care- giver(s) and family unit, and the cost-effectiveness of the alternative home care arrangements relative to traditional inpatient care

Community hospital program (CHP) access impact evaluation surveys, 1978-1979, 1981 by Ronald Andersen( )

6 editions published in 1985 in 3 languages and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data collection evaluates group medical practices and the ways in which they affect both access to and use of medical services. Group practices, sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Community Hospital Program (CHP), were selected for use in this assessment. The data were collected by the Center for Health Administration Studies at the University of Chicago, with the assistance of Chilton Research Services. Two surveys were conducted for the study: a baseline survey in 1978-1979 and a follow-up in 1981. Community residents and CHP patients in 12 communities were interviewed. Demographic and medical care data were collected for selected individuals and families in the survey areas. Data on regular sources of medical care for individuals include the type of organization used, type of practice, accessibility, frequency of visits, types of health care professionals seen, cost, and satisfaction. Also in the collection are data on perceived health, episodes of illness (including symptoms, duration, disability days, and doctors consulted), use of preventive health care services, and insurance coverage. Demographic data for individuals and families include age, sex, race, educational attainment, employment, and income. Of the 198 files in this collection, 88 are ''raw'' fichiers and 110 are frequencies. The fichiers consist of four types. The first type are Sample Person files. These contain the responses of group practice patients and community members. The second type are Doctor Episode files, which record doctors and episodes of illness. Family files make up the third type of file, and consist of family members' responses to the survey. Analysis files, linking patient and doctor data, are the fourth type of file. The SPSS frequency files correspond to the fichiers: two per file for the Sample Person files, and one per file for the remaining three type ...

National Survey of Access to Medical Care, 1975-1976 by Ronald Andersen( )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1984 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was undertaken for the purpose of providing baseline national indicators of access to health care for an evaluation of a program of hospital-based primary care group practices funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The main objective of that large-scale social experiment was to improve access to medical care for the population in areas served by the groups. The access framework and questionnaires designed for the study were developed to provide empirical indicators of the concept that could be used to monitor progress toward this objective. Five data collection instruments were used by the study: the Household Enumeration Folder, the Main Questionnaire, the Health Opinions Questionnaire, the Physician Supplement, and the Hospital/Extended Care Supplement. The Household Enumeration Folder collected basic demographic information on all household members and served as a screener for the episode of illness and minority oversamples. The Main Questionnaire collected information on disability, symptoms of illness, episodes of illness, socioeconomic and demographic characteristics, and access to health care: sources of medical care utilized, problems associated with access to sources of care (e.g., transportation, parking, waiting time for an appointment), satisfaction with medical services received, utilization of medical diagnostic procedures, dental care, and eye care, and insurance coverage and out-of-pocket expenditures for health care. Respondents' opinions concerning the medical care that they received were gauged by the Health Opinions Questionnaire. The Physician Supplement and the Hospital/Extended Care Supplement collected information on physicians contacted and facilities utilized in connection with reported episodes of illness. File 1, File 2, and File 3 constitute the data files for this collection. File 1 comprises data from the Household Enum ... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/07730.xml
