2-0 out of 5 stars slow read
From the very first page, I found this book difficult to get through.Not only is it a very dry book, one gets bogged down in complicated sentence structure and undefined terminology. I think this book is probably designed for folks who already know a lot about managed care (see the bios for the two previous reviews).For someone like me, new to pharma, this book just wasn't basic enough to truly grasp the concept of managed care.

4-0 out of 5 stars ...covers the basics in an understandable and logical order.
The book covers the basics in an understandable and logical order...it is well-organized and complete. Chapter 3, The Infrastructure of Managed Care, is very interesting and informative - is very good at describing howmanaged care organizations do what they do. Chapter 4, Provider Networks,and Chapter 5, Purchasers and Managed Care, are very good chapters withgood descriptions of provider networks and purchasing arrangements. (Reviewed by Bernard J. Turnock, MD, MPH, Professor and Director ofCommunity Health Sciences, School of Public Health, University of Illinoisat Chicago.)

4-0 out of 5 stars ...well thought out and easy to read.
The content of the book overall is well thought out and easy to read.Chapter 1, The Evolution of Managed Care, is an excellent chapter.The Medicaid and Medicare sections of Chapter 5 are excellent. Chapter, 7,Quality of Care, is an excellent chapter--one of the best on quality I'veread.(reviewed by Carmella M. Sebastian, MD, Senior Medical Director,First Priority Health, The Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania HMO) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Practitioner's Guide to Risk Assessment
Dr. Dennis Paustenbach's second handbook on human health and ecological risk assessment further confirms his stature as one of the world's preeminent risk assessment experts and a leading authority on environmental risks and chemical hazards.His new book, which describes both the theory and practice of risk assessment across a broad spectrum regulatory and environmental disciplines, is an excellent companion to his first book in 1989, which was the first published textbook at that time dedicated to environmental risk assessment.This second book provides the scientific community and environmental policy-makers with an up-to-date single source of information about how to conduct human and ecological risk assessments.It is far and away the most comprehensive treatment of the broad multi-discipline field of environmental toxicology and risk assessment available anywhere in print.The book includes over 10,000 full literature citations, which very likely represents the most comprehensive referencing of the published literature on this subject that has ever been compiled for the field of risk assessment.The book is a valuable technical resource in any health sciences and engineering library, and a desktop how-to companion for students, environmental toxicologists and chemists, environmental risk managers and policy decision-makers.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Book incredibly timely...
With the onset of an election year, Richard Hofrichter's book Social Justice and Health is incredibly timely and important.Despite being the 2nd richest nation in the world (only Luxembourg has a higher average GDP), Americans have one of the worst health profiles.The contributers to Hofrichter's book points out the many reasons why this is the case:The USA has the greatets proportion of citizens in low paying jobs, has the greatest number of poor people, and the greatest gap between rich and poor.This condition is made worse by its especially low spending on social infrastructure and on services that support the citizenry.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A concise BW handbook for military medical personnel
The Medical Management of Biological Casualties Handbook, issued by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at Fort Detrick (Maryland), is a concise guidebook distributed to military medical personnel for use out in the field.This little blue book serves as a clear and ready reference on the nature and threat of possible biological casualties; it is by no means a complete text or manual dealing with biological weapon agents.The book also serves as supplemental material for the biological coursework included in the military's Medical Management of Chemical and Biological Casualties Course.The purpose of this ready reference guide comes down to helping medical personnel identify any possible biological weapons attack against our forces in the field in as timely a fashion as possible.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Information about User Guide and Access Code
Just an FYI...which I learned the hard way.This User Guide and Access Code just allows you to access the online course, which has many useful features. (The textbook itself is great). If your instructor indicates that you need the "Online Component," this is it...and this is an additional cost to the textbook with accompanying Student CD-ROM.Also, buyer beware if you plan on purchasing this "User Guide and Access Code" from vendors indicating the item is "Used" or "Like New."**The Access Code can only be used once.** Unless the item is brand new, you may be getting an access code that has already been used and you may be denied access into the online course. Like I said, I learned the hard way. (Please don't take this the wrong way...there's nothing wrong with the vendors and, in fact, I buy many of my books from the Amazon Marketplace vendors. It's just that the publisher, Elsevier, only allows use of this Access Code once. If anything, I would recommend contacting the vendor directly to ask if the Access Code has already been used--just to be sure).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great assessment guide for beginners
I really like this book. East chapter begins with a condensed review of anatomy/physiology related to the body system it covers. Then the reader gets step-by-step instructions on how to provide an assessment for that system (hands on, inspection, etc.), tests associated and how to perform them, normal/abnormal findings, and great pictures. It discusses cultural, developmental, and aging variables. The BEST part is in the documentation - it clearly tells how and examples for doing SOAP notes. At the end of each chapter are cool pictures of abnormal/disease findings. We use this along with the lab manual, which is decent, in our assessment class. One note of dismay: the CD that comes with it is useless, as is their website. Little info and the videos are about 8 seconds long.

4-0 out of 5 stars excellent text !
This is a MUST book for all junior level nursing students.It has very clear and detailed descriptions of how to do a physical exam on every part of the human body.The pictures are of real people, not from drawings.Every chapter hassubjective and objective examination section which makes it very easy to understand and follow.At the end of each chapter, there sample focus assessments to further clarify the topics. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars HMO's
My 85-year-old mother recently fell and severely fractured her hip.Unfortunately, she belongs to a Medicare HMO based in Southern California.Because of the nature of her fracture, she required pinning of her femur, a more extensive procedure than the usual treatment for hip fractures.The HMO which was contractually responsible for her care denied payment to the Skilled Nursisng Facility after l8 days, in spite of written reports from her physical therapists and her doctor detailing the remarkable progress she was making.Thanks to this book, we were able to appeal the HMO's denial, which was immediately again denied by the HMO.The appeal then went on to HCFA for review and the denial was reversed.This has saved my mom thousands of dollars.It should be required reading for anyone involved with HMO's!

5-0 out of 5 stars Required reading for people with health insurance
As a physician who has dealt with many HMOs, I believe this will become the premier guide for people to get the best care out of whatever system they're using.It is about time someone put all of the secrets andresources in one place. Medicine has changed significantly in the last fewyears - right under the noses of most patients and doctors. It's causedfrustration as quality care has diminished. This book will help you getback in charge. I think it should be given out by insurance plans as aguide to how patients should use the system. Congrats to the authors!

5-0 out of 5 stars Care Package for Patients
Read this before you go to the doctor! It explains how to work with your doctors, rather than against them, to get the care you need. It points out why the red tape exists, why the doctors are bound byit, and how the two of you can get around it.This book should be issuedto every patient.It will benefit doctors and patients alike. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Failure to see the root causes of the crisis saves nothing
Newt Gingrich may be viewed by many as being a visionary, but when it comes to a keen understanding of the American disease care system and what it would take to transform it, Mr. Gingrich is quite blind. Here are a few of the things that Newt has failed to see at all, based on the contents of this book:
5-0 out of 5 stars 21st Century Health Care
Saving Lives & Saving Money is a significant work by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, founder of the Center for Health Transformation; Dana Pavey, Gingrich's director of research at the American Enterprise Institute; and Anne Woodbury, vice president for health at the Gingrich Group. Together they have identified the principles of the transformation necessary to create a twenty-first century health care system that will save both lives and money.
4-0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile Ideas and References That Need Editing
This book was written by former Speaker Gingrich and his associates for several reasons. First, to lay out the case in Chapter 2 "why reforming healthcare is doomed to fail and only a process of [completely] transforming health and healthcare can succeed". Second, to provoke a national debate and evolve a strategy for the solution one of the greatest potential political and budget crises of the early part of this century as the baby boomers reach retirement age and Medicare's unfunded liabilities skyrocket. And last, to provide examples of "transforming methodologies" that are actually being successfully utilized today and references to other information sources (including many web sites). He firmly believes that is possible to achieve the twin goals summarized in the book's title and have better health care while spending less at the same time.Read more
