For courses in Health Economics, U.S. Health Policy/Systems, or Public Health, taken by health services students or practitioners.
Students in this course have varying backgrounds in Economics—Folland’s text makes Economics concepts the backbone of the Health Care coverage.
Folland is the best-selling Health Care Economics text that teaches through core economic themes rather than concepts unique to the health care economy.
The Sixth Edition retains the text’s hallmark features while updating content to reflect the major changes in the health policy arena. The core economics themes chosen are as basic as supply and demand, as ever-present as technology or labor issues, and as modern as the economics of information.
