Understanding Managed Care: An Introduction for Health Care Professionals

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

In light of the current widespread utilization of managed care for health care delivery in the United States, it would seem prudent for the practitioner to have a working understanding of this often complex and cumbersome administrative system. Few medical or graduate courses, however, address the practical aspects of the business of health care. The authors of Understanding Managed Care: An Introduction for Health Care Professionals, therefore, fill an important niche by writing a practitioner’s handbook on the economics of health care delivery and cost containment.
