The U.S. Healthcare Ecosystem: Payers, Providers, Producers

Lawton R Burns

The navigator you need to find your way through the process and operational complexities of the U.S. healthcare system

From a seasoned professor of healthcare management at The Wharton School, The U.S. Healthcare Ecosystem provides a new perspective to the subject–navigating readers through complicated environment where healthcare customers, healthcare providers, and those who create products used in healthcare all interact. Emphasizing processes and operations, this thorough resource provides expert insight into important themes, i.e., how the goals of healthcare relate to the “the iron triangle” (cost, quality, and access) and “the triple aim” (per capita cost, population health, and patient experience).

Chapters include brief but timely cases that inspire you to think more critically about what you hear and read about the healthcare industry and make your own informed assessments. Packed with 200 illustrations, The U.S. Healthcare Ecosystem Covers often-neglected topics, such as employer-based health insurance, pharmacy benefits, healthcare consolidation, and biotechnology.

Features:

  • Contains the most current statistics and industry developments
  • Every chapter begins with a roadmap and ends with a summary and questions to ponder
  • Includes insights to drug discovery and development, biotechnology, and information technology, i.e., the marriage of life sciences and business
