Recommended by the American Hospital Association, A Brief Guide provides an updated overview of the health care delivery system, with particular emphasis on the hospital. Each chapter takes a major segment of the system and provides basic information, data and coverage of current issues. Each question-and-answer entry serves as a quick reference for the topic being addressed.
As a whole, the book presents a solid view of how the various constituencies (payers, providers, regulators, clinicians, and patients) in health care fit together.
"This compact primer and fact-laden reference does a great job of organizing and explaining the health care field. In ordinary times, all hospital trustees should read it and pack it with them, and it wouldn t do management and clinical leaders any harm, either. In this extraordinary time of health care reform, the book would help any American consumer to better understand what will be happening in the field for years to come." --Rick de Filippi, Chairman American Hospital Association
The American Hospital Association (AHA) is the national organization that represents and serves all types of hospitals, health care networks, and their patients and communities. Close to 5,000 hospitals, health care systems, networks, other providers of care and 37,000 individual members come together to form the AHA. Founded in 1898, the AHA provides education for health care leaders and is a source of information on health care issues and trends. The Health Forum was created in the fall of 1998 through the union of The Healthcare Forum and the American Hospital Association's publishing and data and information subsidiaries.
