Contents Notes
Introduction -- Health Politics and Policy in Perspective: The Key Concepts -- Health Policy and the Political Structure -- The Health Policy Process: Interest Groups, Stakeholders, and Public Opinion -- The Outcomes: Programs, Policies, and Problems -- The United States in International Perspective. (Publisher-supplied data) The fourth edition of Health Politics and Policy examines the political arena in which United States health care policies are made, and provides a framework for understanding how the process works. This book conveys the excitement of health care politics and covers the issues facing the American health care system. Factors that shape health policy are discussed in detail, including values, private players, and government, as well as the resulting dynamic of these forces. A comparison of the U.S. system to others offers a foundation for understanding our system within an international context.
