"This volume should be considered by academic and public libraries with large healthcare management or business collections as the only current reference on this topic."

"The Encyclopedia of Health Care Management would be useful for those involved in any aspect of health care, whether as a student, instructor, practitioner, researcher, or administrator. This book would be of great use in reference collections at public, university, hospital, and corporate libraries."

Health care is one of today′s most discussed and debated topics. From issues such as accessibility to costs to quality, the debates range widely among doctors, patients, employers, and insurers. A popular topic in political campaigns and the media, health care and health care management is also a quiet and unremitting concern in the private and personal lives of individuals who worry about someday having to choose between food and prescription drugs.
