Features

  • Primer approach allows for immense flexibility for the course. By using the primer with outside readings, courses can evolve over time and/or emphasize a specific theme (e.g., economic policy, international health).
  • The text assumes an understanding of introductory microeconomics and is written for students of diverse backgrounds including economics, health administration, public policy, and business.
  • Major topic areas include an analysis of the effects of technological innovation, global health care, and health care issues in developing countries.
  • Major public policy issues are integrated with the economic analysis, to provide immediate application to theory.
  • Two Appendixes offer a quick review of economics and statistics, to help students revisit the prerequisite concepts they learned in introductory microeconomics.
  • International health care systems are discussed in depth in Part V, "Comparative Systems and Public Policy." This includes an extended case study of India to illustrate health care in developing nations.
  • Institutional material spread throughout the text explores the role of government and private institutions in the evolution of health care delivery in the U.S.
