Heath Care Economics is primarily used as a resource for courses in health economics. It assumes little economics training and it provides an economic approach to understanding health care issues. The book is unique compared to its competition in its comprehensive discussion of the various topics covered, and the number of topics it covers. New to this edition is an appendix to Chapter One that reviews the basics of economic supply and demand analysis, and a new chapter on the Pharmaceutical Industry, which includes the most current policy issues being discussed and demonstrates the use of economics in analyzing this industry. It also contains many figures and tables to illustrate economic analysis and covers major topics in health care today such as understanding the different sectors of medical care and issues dealing with financing health care services and national health insurance. This new edition now includes an online companion with a downloadable instructor’s manual and PowerPoint slides that contain figures and tables from the book.
