5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview
This second edition of Shortliffe's textbook is an excellent overview of the field. Although I used it as a course text, it is extremely readable. The chapters are not overly technical, as befits an introductory text, but by no means is this a "Dummmies" book either. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars How to empower health care consumers

5-0 out of 5 stars Huge but a litle simplistic
Sub-Title: Implications for Providers, Players, and Policy-Makers --,Citizen participation, Consumer satisfaction, Evaluation, Health & Fitness, Health Care Administration, Health Care Delivery, Health Care Issues, Health Policy, Health planning, Health/Fitness, Medical / Nursing, Patient Compliance, Patient satisfaction, Health systems & services, Medical / Administration, Personal & public health, Medical ==If your interests or profession lies in any area of health care this is a book that you almost have to have. In its almost 1,000 pages nearly every aspect of health care coverage is discussed. The format of the book includes some 200 pages written by Professor Herslinger followed by some 72 articles written by some 93 participants in a conference she held. As you would expect, the quality of the papers vary greatly. ==There are also a few reasons to disagree with some of Professor Herslingers basic thesis. She seems to believe that health insurers would compete in a fair market place to provide care to anyone. This is simply not true. If an insurance company can pre-select to eliminate giving any coverage at all to the sicker or more risky patients, it is to their benefit. An AIDS patient, with a requirement for expensive drugs can be folded into the coverage written for a large group, but an individual policy would have to be very expensive, or simply not written at all. The coverage of such patients is covered with what I think are unrealistic assumptions. ==The book presents a series of views that are just a bit simplistic, but which are forming a part of the national debate on health care. The information is needed if only to be aware of the discussion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful Contribution
In Consumer-Driven Health Care, Regina E. Herzlinger, a leading health care thought leader and a professor at the Harvard Business School, provides a thought-provoking look inside a new, powerful force slowly transforming America's dysfunctional health care industry. Consumer-Driven Health Care builds on her popular 1997 book Market-Driven Health Care: Who Wins, Who Loses in the Transformation of America's Largest Service Industry.

1-0 out of 5 stars Wait until you see what the test is REALLY like!!!
I just took the CPC test a few days ago.I did my course work.They did not really go over past tests but I had secured a simulation of one.I purchased this book because I felt sample tests were something I needed to practice.All the anatomy, etc., in this book is too in depth for what is on the test and overdone...look at how the test is setup.The book should be more based on CPT, ICD, HCPCS, real life examples of coding, etc., that you need for the test.I took the tests in the book and scored well on them.... Then comes the REAL test.OH MY GOSH.I found it to be much more difficult than the sample tests in the book or more difficult than any sample questions I had seen anywhere.And don't think that topics will be evenly covered - mine had 5 cath's on it and no spine, for example. The book didn't hurt, but you need to do much more work than just this book if you want to pass the test. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource
This book is an excellent resource.I am the business manager and wife of a physician with a fairly new solo practice.I stay busy implementing many of the simple, practical recommendations in this book.Not only have we increased volume and income, but our office runs more smoothly.Thanks, Dr. Baum.

5-0 out of 5 stars outstanding
Neil Baum's book contains the sum of all other advice that I had ever heard before I bought it and I was surprised how much more it contains. No wonder nobody recommended it to me. Every resident should receive it as a graduation gift from her or his program director. It is an absolut must for private practice. Consultants are not going to tell you more than what you will read in this book, they just charge you 20 times as much. The single most valuable book for marketing your own practice.

There is ample evidence America has a serious problem with poor quality health care.Thankfully, there is no shortage of caring professionals motivated to improve care and the problems are solvable.As with any effort to improve performance, measurement is the first step to improving care and reducing medical mistakes.As I often remind clients and colleagues: you can't fix what you can't see.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good place to start
Mary-Jane Schneider's "Introduction to Public Health" is just what she claims it is - an introduction.The book is a very concisely and clearly-written overview on a range of public health topics such as water quality, epidemiology, and chronic diseases.Schneider divides the book into seven parts that look at the definition of public health, analytical methods of public health, public health'sbiomedical basis, social and behavioral factors, environmental issues, medical care, and the future of public health.The book should be valued not for its depth but its breadth - Schneider does cover a variety of important public health topics but she does not go into great detail.Including a list of resources or suggested reading at the end of each chapter would have been greatly appreciated.However, to Schneider's credit, the book does have cute illustrations and includes numerous charts, graphs, and discussion questions at the end of every chapter.The book is also very readable and isn't as daunting or dry as some other public health textbooks.This book is a great complement to Bernard Turnock's introduction to public health, as Turnock does go into some of the nitty gritty of public health but doesn't cover as many issues as Schneider does.

4-0 out of 5 stars Truly a wonder
Truly a wonder.Not only is it full of useful information, well organized, thorough, and insightful - it's readable!!!For once, I could not put a book (other than a novel!) down!The author kept my interest alive with the excellent use of the language and the ability to keep even sub-sub-sections organized and to the point.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A concise and accessible introduction to available US health care
Department of Health Policy Management Professor Leiyu Shi and School of Public and Environmental Affairs Associate Professor Douglas Singh present Essentials of the US Health Care System, a concise and accessible introduction to available US health care. Written as a textbook especially for students considering a profession in the field, yet also accessible to lay readers, Essentials of the US Health Care System includes basic information concerning the effects of modern medical technology, the roles of different providers and professionals in US health care, managed care and health networks, long-term care services, and much more. Graphs, charts, and black-and- white photographs round out this excellent primer of basic terms and concepts; each section features a neatly summarized conclusion and a list of references for more information. Also very highly recommended is the author's previous textbook, Delivering Health Care In America: A Systems Approach.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great guide to life after cancer
I'm finding lots of answers to the many questions I have after finishing chemo for Non Hodgkins Lymphoma.Even family members would find this book helpful too.It's reassuring, honest and comforting reading about getting back to "life" after such a life changing event.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE book for life after cancer
When you visit the health section of your local bookstore, you'll find a plethora of information about getting through a cancer diagnosis, and very little about how to adjust to life after cancer. As the founder of a cancer support group, I believe that survivors are leaving our hospitals in droves - unprepared.
4-0 out of 5 stars This book was critical to my recovery
I can't remember who suggested this book to me while I was recovering from surgery and radiation for liposarcoma in my leg. It must've been someone from my online support group.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worthless
One word-Worthless!!!!!!This book is about a lot of people's different theories on the nursing home industry, uses terms that my administrator had never even heard of, and basically, just makes no sense at all!And to boot, it cost me $50 with shipping.Do not waste your time even thinking about buying it...

2-0 out of 5 stars Good but not great.
Def. better than nothing but be sure to study everything and not just this book and the green administrators licensure book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Much better than the green text book
A valuable study guide indeed.I passed the NAB exam a few weeks ago....and this book was a huge help.......a wise investment.Also, for what it's worth.......I had a'lot of experience in LTC (Assistant Activity Director, etc.)....I was also a State Nursing Home surveyor for 4.5 years before starting my AIT........listen up: the NAB is the hardest exam I've ever taken in my entire life! It's the kind of test that'll bring you to tears......trust me on this......study like you've never studied before in your life!! ... Read more
