5-0 out of 5 stars Delivering Health Care in America: A Systems Approach
I was very satisfied. Quick service and quality product.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best
I've seen a lot of health care texts and this one is by far the best book of its kind.Very current and thorough coverage of all aspects of health care delivery. This book really shows you how all of the components of the health care system fit together. The author has done a remarkable job and all students in health care and health administration need to read this book.KUDOS!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Fluffy
This book is near 600 pages, but it could be condensed to 300 easily: by cutting back on some simplistic flow charts and over-explanation.Maybe the goal was to make the book readable for the high school level, but I didn't find its style or level appropriate for a graduate (MBA) textbook.One further annoyance was the authors' shameless and open promotion of socialized health care.A more balanced take would give the authors greater credibility. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Goal Achieved!
A Case Manager's Study Guide: Preparing for Certification works well for the motivated self learner. The information contained in the book is thorough and concise. I felt prepared for the test after I completed my studies. The test questions, with the added benefit of having them on a CD-ROM, provide the learner with an excellent opportunity to prepare for the certification test environment, especially if you have test anxiety! I just received notice that I met the qualifications and passed the examination to be qualified as a Certified Case Manager(CCM). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Quickly settles disputes, answers questions, a "MUST" for all home care nurses & their management teams !!!!
I have the 4th edition (at this time is the most recent edition in print) and as a psych home care nurse, this little, portable wealth of knowledge has helped me validate to management, as well as to public health and other surveyors, the range in situations that qualify "homebound status" for psychiatric patients.Throughout the book there are samples provided to support a variety of situations that help the nurse better understand, and therefore more accurately report, on each sector of the OASIS forms.Medicare regulations are explained in detail, and I learned information that I had not known in the 14 years I have been doing mental health home care nursing.The manual provides a history and background of homecare, its evolution, provides an overview of documentaion, including the importance of coding, and its significance in home care.Also, valuable tips on improving the nursing visit, setting achievable goals, managing the case, and the guidelines for care for all the home care disciplines, are provided, so the nurse can be knowledgable regarding the roles of the other disciplines.There is a great resource section at the end of the book, and home care definitions, roles, and abbreviations are delineated in this manual as well.All home care codes are listed.

I am not a case manager, however I work with them on a regular basis. I have found this book extremely helpful in understanding the field, theimpact case management can and does have on the health care deliveryprocess, and how it helps improve outcomes and contain costs, especially incritical and chronic care cases. This book is an invaluable tool for casemanagers and anyone who requires proven, nuts and bolts information on theprocess of case management and the role of case managers in health care.Lots of basic, hands-on, how-to information.

The concepts in this book have strenghtened the loving care we provide at our hospice. Our patients and families love the angels of hospice who provide true sacred encounters.I would recommend this work to ANY healthcare organization committed to providing the best care imaginable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Healthcare Book Ever!
Radical Loving Care is, in my opinion, a breakthrough book. Every caregiver in America should read this - and then put Erie's words into action. American healthcare would be transformed for the better.

This is a very good source for a basic overview.It is well-organized and clear, but it is only a starting point.I didn't have a clue about where to start, so this is perfect for that.

I bought this bought and found it very informative. It is an excellent start-up tool and very easy to read and understand. After two year, I still refer back to my book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Hard to get past the Typos
This book was amusing, informative and very easy to read.The author spends much of his time promoting himself as a Practice Manager and offers his help and his advice "by the hour".It is difficult, however, to envision the thought of paying an expert whose own book contains a minimum of 1 typographical error per page.I question the attention to detail and fiscal expertise of someone whose own publication reads like my 3rd graders book report (before editing).Typos aside, the book provided us with a baseline level of Practice Management information and offered a solid introduction to what will be a new endeavor for my husband and I. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Many Products Discontinued
I love this book and have walked into many stores carrying it.The only downfall is that many of the products have been discontinued.For example, Almay no longer makes the solid anti-perspirant unscented deodorant (you can get it in gel form, but I was looking for a solid), also several of the hair and makeup products have been discontinued by the companies that produce them.Since the book was originally published in 1995, it needs to be updated since products are constantly changing on the market.But the book has still been a useful tool for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Safety Guidelines for Consumers
There is no question that every consumer should have this book for their own safety and health. Astounding facts on chemicals used in products that cause cancer, allergies, asthma and dermatitis to name a few. Buyers beware, many health problems are related to the products we use. Incredible diary of each and every chemical. Products are rated on a scale, for safety and use, following consumer protection guidelines.

5-0 out of 5 stars A solid guide for students, professionals, and lay people
Now in an updated fifth edition, Health Care USA: Understanding Its Organization And Delivery by co-authors Harry A. Sultz (Dean Emeritus School of Health Related Professions State University of New York at Buffalo) and Kristina M. Young (Instructor Department of Social and Preventive Medicine School of Public Health and Health Professions University of Buffalo, State University of New York) is a solid guide for students, professionals, and lay people to the latest industry developments, cost increases, and legal transformations to the American health care system. From the organization, origin, and performance of hospitals, to the nuances of financing health care, managed health care, long-term care, and mental health services, Health Care USA spares neither depth nor statistical analysis. Charts and graphs help illustrate the meticulously researched data, and exhaustive notes and an index round out this "must-have" reference guide for any reader seeking a better understanding of America's governmental health care bureaucracy.
1-0 out of 5 stars I would have given it a minus three stars if it had been available
This is the hardest to read textbook I have ever owned.Textbook authors need to understand that they are writing for students, not their peers.I want the basics.I want to be able to read it in my own language and not have to continually look up words that the majority of people never use.I have other things to do with my time besides trying to decipher what the authors are trying to say.It's as if it's written in code and you have to figure out what it means.It's like learning a different language.They could have put the important stuff in a book about 50 pages long and left out 400 pages of filler.
