Readers and instructors looking for an up-to-date, broad-based overview of US health policy should strongly consider using the book.”–The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) (From reviews of the 10th Edition.) “”Health care managers, practitioners, and students must both operate as effectively as they can the daunting and continually evolving system at hand and identify opportunities for reform advances Health Care Delivery in the US has been an indispensable companion to those preparing to manage this balance. The present edition demonstrates once again why this volume has come to be so prized.

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.

Designed for graduate and advanced undergraduate students of health care management and administration and public health, the text addresses all of the complex core issues surrounding our health care system in a strikingly readable and accessible format. Contributors provide an in-depth and objective appraisal of why and how we organize health care the way we do, the enormous impact of health-related behaviors on the structure, function, and cost of the health care delivery system, and other emerging and recurrent issues in health policy, health care management, and public health. The 11th edition features the writings of such luminaries as Michael Gusmanno, Carolyn Clancy, Joanne Spetz, Nirav Shah, Sherry Glied, Michael Sparer, and Christy LeMak, among others. Chapters include key words, learning objectives and competencies, discussion questions, case studies, and additional resources. Included for instructors is a Manual, Power Point Slides, Syllabus, Test Bank, Image Bank, Supplemental e-chapter on the ACA, and a transition guide bridging the 10th and 11th editions.
