Blurb/Shorttext:
The United States has a health care system with two faces. The first face is a famous one - the country is known for its constant advancements in health care technology and state of the art research in health care-related disciplines. The other face is an infamous one - the system is ill-famed for its record number of people without health insurance, its skyrocketing health care expenditures as well as the deteriorating health of its population. This book intends to take a close look at this unique social system and analyze current trends that move it forward. When looking at trends, special emphasis is laid upon the movement around consumer-driven health care, which has become extremely popular among private health care providers in recent years and now features regularly in policies by the current administration. The mind shift from “treating patients” to “providing services to consumer” has come a long way in a country that strives to be known as a place where all areas of life are subjected to the efficient forces of free markets and consumer demand.
