Editor: Stanford University Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The debate over health care policy in the U. S. did not end when President Obama signed the landmark Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) on March 23, 2010. Since then, half the states have sued and federal judges have issued conflicting rulings about the law's constitutionality. In addition, the new Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted to repeal it, and Republicans have pledged to bring it up again during negotiations over the 2012 federal budget. The continuing controversies over PPACA are only one reason that Still Broken: Understanding the U.S. Health Care System is a must-read for engaged citizens, policymakers, students, and scholars alike. The book takes a close look at our problems, proposes solutions to them, and explains how to navigate our political system to effect positive change. It will help readers: * Assess the arguments made by partisans on both sides of the continuing debate. * Understand why President Obama was able to get Congress to pass a comprehensive reform bill even though most of his predecessors tried and failed. * Understand why so many Americans are either confused about its value or actually oppose it. In the book's first part, Stephen M. Davidson paints a lucid picture of the way that the health system works and the forces that produced the monumental problems that we face today. Then, he makes a compelling case for overhauling our system, offering six elements for inclusion in any plan for change. Davidson devotes the last three chapters to a detailed examination of the politics of reform. This assessment will help readers to appreciate both the political achievement represented by passage of the new law and the reasons that opposition to the law remains so widespread, despite all the good it does for the public. Whatever compromises, if any, are accepted by negotiators in the end, the book makes clear why, to fully solve the system's problems, the underlying goal must be to change incentives for all players who participate in the system and, finally, why this goal cannot be achieved by relying solely on market-based solutions. Davidson's captivating and persuasive book demonstrates that only a solution with a large public-sector role can lead us to real reform.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Medical malpractice lawsuits are common and controversial in the United States. Since early 2002, doctors' insurance premiums for malpractice coverage have soared. As Congress and state governments debate laws intended to stabilize the cost of insurance, doctors continue to blame lawyers and lawyers continue to blame doctors and insurance companies. This book, which is the capstone of three years' comprehensive research funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts, goes well beyond the conventional debate over tort reform and connects medical liability to broader trends and goals in American health policy. Contributions from leading figures in health law and policy marshal the best available information, present new empirical evidence, and offer cutting-edge analysis of potential reforms involving patient safety, liability insurance and tort litigation.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Medical care is an industry and private providers and hospitals are the major service providers. They operate on business principles. Hospitals are getting highly specialized and complex. The diagnostics and therapeutics are technology intensive. Private establishments have to compete with one another to remain in business. They strive to induct the best talent and latest technical know-how, resulting in ever-increasing costs to patients. Patients, who pay high charges, demand quality as a matter of right. To meet the challenge, hospitals are constrained to bring in professionalism in their systems and services. They appoint qualified professional managers to manage their clinics and hospitals with a view to sparing health professionals to focus on clinical care. Whether right or wrong, ‘management’ is often associated with authority and power. As a result, the medical professionals are reduced to secondary level in some organizations. To retain commanding positions in medical organizations, it has become necessary for the healthcare professionals to learn ‘management’, at least its basics. On the other hand, non-medical managers while managing healthcare services do not get the required cooperation from the medical professionals, as the latter are often secretive and not willing to share medical knowledge. If medical knowledge is demystified, non-medical managers can perform many functions in healthcare organizations proficiently. Both medical and non-medical managers can complement each other in providing quality healthcare services. The book aims to orient clinicians (including physicians and nurses) and other healthcare professionals on the essentials of business management and to familiarize them with management terms and jargon. They can learn to be effective managers besides being health professionals. Similarly, non- medical managers can get familiarized to nuances of clinical care and special managerial requirements of healthcare facilities. They all will be able to relate processes in healthcare settings with the concepts of business management. They can develop expertise on patient relationship management
