"Improving Health Care of the Poor is an in-depth assessment of the extent to which Medicare and Medicaid have met the expectations of the citizens of the United States as well as New York City, and of the challenges to the bureaucracy charged with making these programs work."--BOOK JACKET. "The term "the poor" here refers to persons on Medicaid, persons without health insurance, and persons who are underinsured, that is, those whose benefits fall short of their needs. It also includes those who may have insurance coverage, but who are disadvantaged racially, ethnically, or linguistically. New York City is the focus of this inquiry because of its long-standing commitment to provide essential health care to all citizens irrespective of their ability to pay, its bifurcated hospital system composed of independent yet overlapping voluntary and public sectors, and its vast governmental and private funding. About 10 percent of the 1 million immigrants who enter the United States each year reside, at least temporarily, in New York City. Many lack medical insurance and challenge the health care sector by virtue of their inability to speak English. Improving Health Care of the Poor is particularly timely and that will benefit policy analysts, sociologists, economists, social scientists, and health care professionals."--Jacket

Changing U.S. health care : a study of four metropolitan areas by Eli Ginzberg( Book )

"The decade of the 1980s promised basic reform in the provision of health care services. Ronald Reagan, newly elected to the presidency on a pledge to minimize the role of government in domestic affairs, committed his administration to the pursuit of freemarket strategies as the panacea for the costliness and inefficiency besetting the nation's health care system. Official and private rhetoric was replete with proposals for systemic change fueled by the competitive forces that would be unleashed by deregulation." "Once the federal government yielded its long-held place as innovator and reformer, it was inevitable that the states would be catapulted into positions of greater prominence in the shaping of health care policy. This book assesses the changes that have actually occurred in the U.S. health care system, analyzing the nation's four largest metropolitan centers, which together with their states account for 74 million persons, or roughly one-third of the nation's population." "The study delineates specific developments within each metro area, attempting to capture and analyze the many differences and the many parallels among the four that might illuminate the dynamics and the contours of change in the health care system. Among the areas selected for investigation are the following: alternative responses to the growing surplus of acute-care hospital beds; the potentiators of, and the impediments to, the elaboration of HMOs and other innovative forms of health care delivery; public and private responses to the uncompensated care issue; the establishment of new ambulatory care facilities and their interaction with existing hospitals; the responses of both the governmental and nongovernmental sectors to the growing surplus of physicians and the supply of other medical personnel; the impact of pressures imposed by declining hospital admissions and early discharges on the nursing home and home health care sectors; the principal consequences for local academic health centers (AHCs) of the more price-competitive environment and the shift from inpatient to ambulatory treatment; the degree of satisfaction/disappointment among the local business coalitions with progress toward their major goals and the modification of these goals with experience; and identification of health care issues that commanded the attention of the press, the public, and political groups, and the action taken in response to them." "Changing U.S. Health Care represents a major attempt to contrast the rhetoric and predictions prevalent in the 1980s with the realities facing the health care system today."--BOOK JACKET
