Reorganizing health care delivery systems : problems of managed care and other models of health care delivery

"This book addresses important themes in medical sociology, with papers that range from those with an explicit policy point of view to narrower papers on more specific issues in health care delivery. One of the lessons of the past decade is that no countries in the world are completely satisfied with their health care delivery systems nor do they believe they have resolved the tensions of how to provide access to all to high quality care at a reasonable cost. This volume contributes to improving our understanding of these issues and provides a sociological focus for the exploration of these issues. This makes the volume essential reading for medical sociologists and other social scientists studying health care delivery issues. The information is also helpful for health services researchers, policy analysts, and public health researchers."--Jacket
