Product Details

Synopsis
The seventh edition of Introduction to Health Services builds upon its reputation as a classic. This new edition addresses the increasing pressure to improve the efficiency of the nation’s health care system and to provide an adequate level of health care for all Americans. The seventh edition reflects the revolutionary changes in the practice of clinical medicine, government policy, information technology, and health care cost containment. In-depth information in the areas of health care finance, health care access, managed care, and insurance and home health is also provided. Research and statistics throughout make this book a premier reference for understanding all the services that compose the health care landscape. This book explores key texts-Howard’s End, The Rainbow, and the poetry of Owen, Sassoon, and Edward Thomas–to show the mingled continuation and rejection of convention as their characteristic achievement, exploring features often seen as failures. It also discusses the writing’s increasing concerns with the inadequacies of language, seeing it within the frame of contemporary society and deconstructive theory, and attempting to locate them in relation to high Modernism.
