Summary : America's market-based health care system, unique among the nations of the world, is in large part the product of an obscure, yet profound, revolution that overthrew the medical monopoly in the late 1970s. In this lucid, balanced account, Carl F. Ameringer tells how this revolution came into being when the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress prompted the antitrust agencies of the federal government—the Federal Trade Commission and the Justice Department—to change the rules of the health care system. Ameringer lays out the key events that led up to this regime change; explores its broader social, political, and economic contexts; examines the views of both its proponents and opponents; and considers its current trajectory.

Summary : Despite widespread pride by Canadians about their healthcare delivery system, the unprecedented wait list for diagnosis and treatment leads to needless suffering and avoidable deaths. Provincial government officials dictate a fixed budget for each institution and program, and healthcare providers must adhere to a strict bottom line. To keep a cash-starved system afloat until the end of each fiscal year involves closing beds even though the demand is dire, maintaining an insufficient supply of nursing homes, causing a shortage of physicians, nurses and technicians, restricting overtime for all employees, canceling procedures at the last moment because of shortages and maintaining a scarcity of investigative machinery. In The Single Payer Healthcare System: Faults and Fixes, Dr. Henry Krahn draws from his long career as a urologist to give an unparalleled inside look at the government's version of socialized medicine. He explains the changes that occurred in Manitoba as the province transitioned from a functional and fluid single-payer insurance system to the governmentmanaged quagmire of wait lists and scarcity it is today. He argues persuasively that by using a single-payer non-profit mutual insurance approach with arms-length government oversight, Canada could create a universal healthcare delivery system that provides affordable, high quality treatment within days rather than months. The healthcare system should include international healthcare insurance coverage at Canadian rates. With extensive examples, convincing arguments, and a lifetime of experience, Dr. Krahn points the way towards a system for which Canadians could truly be proud.

Summary : The authors are recognized as national experts in the design of hospitals and other health care facilities that are 'sustainable.' Both authors are engaged in the development of the Green Guide for Health Care 2.0 Pilot (gghc.org) that launched in late 2004. A new rating system and policy, LEED Application Guide for Healthcare (LEED-HC), using the Green Guide as its foundation, is scheduled for release by USGBC in late 2006 and both authors are active in its development. This book will build upon the authors' combined expertise and will be considered THE guide to learning about sustainable practices for healthcare and LEED-HC. It will include LEED-HC information and guidelines, as well as case studies of the best projects and contributed essays by acknowledged experts on topics related to sustainable design for healthcare. Importantly, an increasing number of hospitals and other health care facility building projects are required to be sustainable in some way, especially if the project is receiving government funding.

Summary : At the very heart of modern healthcare is a critical paradox. Today, as never before, healthcare has the ability to enhance the quality and duration of life. At the same time, healthcare has become so enormously costly that it can easily bankrupt governments and impoverish individuals and families. According to federal forecasters, by the year 2015 one in every five U.S. dollars will be spent on healthcare, for total annual healthcare spending of more than $4 trillion. While the cost of healthcare is going up, the number of individuals and families without health insurance coverage is increasing. For many, the miracles of modern medicine may be unaffordable. Health services research investigates the relationship between the factors of cost, quality, and access to healthcare and their impact upon medical outcomes (i.e., death, disease, disability, discomfort, and dissatisfaction with care). Health services research addresses such key questions as, Why is the cost of healthcare always increasing? How can healthcare costs be successfully contained without jeopardizing quality? How can medical errors be eliminated? What is the medical impact of not having health insurance coverage? The proposed encyclopedia addresses these and other important questions and issues.
