9780136080305: The Economics of Health and Health Care

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.

From the Back Cover:

This best-selling comprehensive introduction to the economics of health and health care thoroughly develops and explains economic ideas and models and reflects the full spectrum of the most current health economics literature. It provides students with a solid working knowledge of the analytical tools of economics and econometrics as applied to contemporary health care issues.

NEW TO THIS EDITION

  • Totally re-written chapter on managed care.
  • New analyses on "who pays" for health insurance.
  • New chapter on economic "bads" (Chapter 25). Most analyses look at things that are good for us - "bad" items such as cigarettes are usually not covered.
  • New chapter on pharmaceuticals (Chapter 26). Rather than a simple "industry study," the text examines portions of the pharmaceutical industry with important economic content. These include questions as to the optimal combinations of drug therapies and other economic technologies, patent protection issues, and price discrimination by pharmaceutical firms.
