Summary
This best-seller examines health care economics through core economic themes rather than concepts unique to the health care economy. The Sixth Edition updates content to reflect the major changes in the health policy arena. This 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
