Improving health care of the poor : the New York City experience by Eli Ginzberg( Book )

"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 )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

The integration of primary care in a behavioral health outpatient setting: Identifying Unmet Medical Needs and Improving Access to Care by Rachael A Petitti( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was conducted to explore the potential benefits attributed to providing on-site primary care at a behavioral health treatment facility, which include addressing unmet medical needs, improving disease detection, and increasing access to primary care. Specifically, I advanced prior research on integrated models of care by testing the validity of offering a reverse model of care in which a behavioral health outpatient facility coordinated the total care plan. I conducted a randomized control trial study in order to compare differences in access to primary care and disease detection for patients in a treatment group---those who receive integrated care, behavioral health and primary care services on-site; with patients in a control group---those who receive behavioral health services as usual, and who are referred to the local Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). The Institutional Review Board of The New School for Social Research approved this study prior to commencement. The data set in this study was extracted from a practice management software system operated at an outpatient behavioral health facility which provides mental health and substance use disorders treatment within a low income, urban setting in Connecticut

Loosely evidence-based: The role of research in U.S. teen pregnancy policy by Julia E Kohn( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation documents the social construction of teen pregnancy as an "epidemic" during the 1970s and the use of research in the consideration and passage of the Adolescent Health Services and Pregnancy Prevention and Care Act of 1978---the first federal teen pregnancy policy effort. It then explores the connection between welfare reform and teen pregnancy, particularly the use of research during the passage of welfare reform legislation in 1996. Finally, it reveals a marked shift toward evidence-based policy in 2010 with the establishment of a new federal teen pregnancy prevention program, funded through both federal appropriations and health care reform legislation
An Empirical Analysis of Mental Health Utilization Among U.S. Based Anglophone, Francophone, and Hispanophone Afro Caribbeans: Implications for Urban Mental Health Policy by Charles A., Jr Swift( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study explores the utilization of mental health services for three U.S. based Afro-Caribbean ethnic subgroups. The problem focused upon in this study consisted of minority mental health, and specifically the fact that blacks in the United States are not a homogeneous group and therefore need to be studied while taking into consideration the important sociocultural differences between them. To date there has been almost no published research on mental health utilization among Francophone, Hispanophone, and Anglophone Afro Caribbean immigrants. This study features a systematic exploration of alternative resource and barrier theories, these perspectives/models were utilized to support my hypothesis and examine differences that were revealed among the groups
