(From reviews of the 10th Edition)

This fully updated and revised 11th edition of a highly esteemed survey and analysis of health care delivery in the U.S. keeps pace with the rapid changes that are reshaping our system. Fundamentally, this new edition presents the realities that impact our nation's achievement of the so-called Triple Aim: better health and better care at a lower cost. It addresses challenges and responses to the Accountable Care Act, the implementation of Obamacare, and many new models of care designed to replace outmoded systems. Contributions by leading scholars, practitioners, and educators within population health and medical care present the most up-to-date evidence-based information on health disparities, vulnerable populations, and immigrant health; nursing workforce challenges; new information technology; preventative medicine; emerging approaches to control health care costs, and much more.
