Book Description :

At present, human society is facing a health care crisis that is affecting patients worldwide. In the United States, it is generally believed that the major problem is lack of affordable access to health care (i.e. health insurance). This book takes an unprecedented approach to address this issue by proposing that the major problem is not lack of affordable access to health care per se, but lack of access to better, safer, and more affordable medicines. The latter problem is present not only in the United States and the developing world but also in countries with socialized health care systems, such as Europe and the rest of the industrialized world. This book provides a comparative analysis of the health care systems throughout the world and also examines the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Examines the health care structure of the United States, Europe, and the third world, both separately and comparatively Offers primary source insight through in-depth interviews with pharmaceutical and health care industry leaders from around the world Carefully explains, in clear terms, the intricacies of the health care and pharmaceutical system and how these intricacies have led to the current crisis Offers concrete, comprehensive solutions to the health care crisis

Book Description :

Surprisingly, America ranks 54 worldwide in access to health care. Solving the American Health Care Crisis lays open the issues, challenges Americans to think for themselves, and reveals how learning from other countries can help to create, truly, the best health care system in the world. In the span of his career as an international businessman and entrepreneur, Umang Malhotra has voyaged through nearly eighty countries and he shares his vast knowledge of health care in other nations. In a commonsense book aimed at the public and policymakers alike, he provides a fresh, unbiased view of the flaws inherent in the American health care system while examining how other affluent nations manage to provide quality universal health care coverage for half the cost per person. After the death of his best friend, who did not have American health insurance when he fell ill while visiting the United States, Malhotra wondered why the richest country in the world treats health care as a privilege, rather than as a basic right, unlike other industrialized nations. He reveals how other countries approach health care while examining the critical economic, social, and political issues that America must resolve, in the belief that we can only make progress when the average person understands, fully, the real issues behind the crisis. The book presents compelling solutions for an affordable, high quality, and accessible, universal system while answering key questions and asking some very pointed ones in return. The reader is left well armed to think the issue through.

Book Description :

Academic Paper from the year 2021 in the subject Health - Public Health, grade: 98, , language: English, abstract: The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) underscores the long-standing flaws of healthcare systems across the world. Since the initial outbreak in Wuhan China in late 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic continuous to subject healthcare systems to their limits. The pandemic has triggered a series of reactions across the world, with composite transnational implications. Yet, contingency policies at the national level have led to divergent outcomes, often with immense human and socioeconomic costs. Some countries like New Zealand were quick to react to the pandemic, which has since proved effective in containing COVID-19 transmission. However, indecisiveness, policy errors, and discordance have adversely strained healthcare resources in other nations like the United Kingdom. The sheer scale of the COVID-19 crisis constitutes an imperative precedent for evaluating potential opportunities to improve population health. Lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic offers exclusive insights and opportunities to strengthen public health infrastructures, cope with a future health crisis, and other global health issues.

Book Description :

The challenges to better health services in Africa are well known: Africa lags behind all regions of the world, including other developing regions, on all indicators of better health. A recent report from the World Health Organisation for instance shows that while Africa has 20% of the world's sick people, it has only 4% of its healthcare workers - many of them vulnerable to the high mortality rate associated with malaria and notably the AIDS epidemic. The state of investment in healthcare infrastructure is also grossly inadequate as is the efficiency of healthcare delivery. But does this need to be so? What factors are responsible for this unacceptable state of affairs? Contributors to the volume examine the evolution of healthcare services in Africa, the ongoing national, regional and continental efforts to improve the delivery of healthcare in the continent, and the direct and indirect obstacles militating against the maturation of the services and their efficient delivery. The contributors - all distinguished experts in the field, - so provide powerful personal insights and lessons learned in their current or previous work in the health sector in Africa. Some of the themes covered include clinical care and centers of excellence, healthcare finance and resource mobilization, primary health care systems and community health and preventive care and risk reduction in health. From their analyses and experience the authors articulate strategies and solutions on how to improve the quality of health services and health outcomes in the continent. ____________________________________ Dr. Chinua Akukwe is the Chairman of the Technical Advisory Board of the Africa Center for Health and Human Security, George Washington University Medical Center, Washington, DC., USA.

Book Description :

In 1948 Americans spent five percent of total consumption on health care. Six decades later (2009) this had risen to twenty-one percent. What happened? Why did the percentage continue to grow? And given current factors and trajectories, this probably will continue in the foreseeable future. The problem is that a larger health care percentage results in a smaller percentage of other valued consumption: housing, food, education, transportation, and so on. Finally, add health cares bureaucratic burden. Often getting health care seems more like an Inquisition than purchasing products and services from friendly merchants and medical providers. Addressing these concerns, this study examines the post-war economic history of health care spending is examined, using evolutionary economic theory and an econometric model analyzing 19482009 data. Important causes of health care spending growth include: 1. the initial rule change permitting employers to exclude employee health insurance premiums from taxation, 2. a feedback pattern wherein greater insurance generates greater spending, which then generates greater insurance demand, 3. a growing federal presence, such as the Medicare and Medicaid programs, and 4. the rise of both private and public managed care services. With an ever-growing percentage of health care dollars paid by insurance, it is becoming ever-more bureaucratic, with rules governing every aspect of health care practices. The conundrum is how to get those consuming health care to become more responsible, while providing a safety net for everyone needing health care, even for those without an ability to pay. The Conclusion discusses these issues.

The book series on the ethics of science and technology assessment edited by the Europ?ische Akademie is devoted to the publication of the work-reports of its project groups, works on the foundations of ethics, the philosophy science, and other issues related to the work of the Europ?ische Akademie. In addition, the series comprises the proceedings of conferences organized by the academy. The 13th volume documents the proceeding of the academy's spring symposium in 2000 on Rationing in Medicine which was held in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler on March 23-25, 2000. An intense discussion on the future of health care in Europe has been stimulated by increasing difficulties of securing adequate and needs orientated medical care in the face of scarce resources and medical progress. Un fortunately, quite of ten a rational discussion of rationing is drowned out by the politic al talk of the day. But only an open and well-informed debate, if anything at ali, can lead to transparent and just rationing procedures which eventually might be acceptable to the public at large. For this debate much can be learnt from observing the experiences other countries have made with their health care arrangements. What kinds of mistakes should be avoided and what might be useful in the different states and perhaps also in the supra-national context of an emerging Europe are interesting and important issues.

Book Description :

“I’ve still got my health so what do I care?” goes a lyric in an old Cole Porter song. Most of us, in fact, assume we can’t live full lives, or take on life’s challenges, without also assuming that we’re basically healthy and will be for the foreseeable future. But these days, our health and well-being are sorted through an ever-expanding, profit-seeking financial complex that monitors, controls, and commodifies our very existence. Given that our access to competent, affordable health care grows more precarious each day, the arrival of Health Care Under the Knife could not be more timely. In this empowering book, noted health-care professionals, scholars, and activists—including editor Howard Waitzkin—impart their inside knowledge of the medical system: what’s wrong, how it got this way, and what we can do to heal it. The book is comprised of individual essays addressing the “medical industrial complex,” the impact of privatization and cutbacks under neoliberalism, the nature of health-care work, and the intersections between health care and imperialism, both historically and at present. We see how the health of our bodies in “developed” countries is tied to the health of the bodies of the labor force in the Global South, and how the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund are linked strangely, inextricably, to our physical well-being. But this analysis would not be complete without the book’s final section, which delivers invaluable guidance for how to change this system. Recounting case studies and successful efforts for creating a more humane community, this book ultimately gives us hope that our health-care system can be rescued and made an integral part of a new and radically different society.

Book Description :

This book represents the first comparative study of how health policy is made in leading industrial nations. Using detailed case histories of the UK, the US and Germany, it shows that health care systems and modern states are indissolubly bound together. The author explains how the health care state originated before the rise of democracy, and demonstrates that it has had to confront the twin pressures of democratic politics and competitive capitalism. It focuses on three important arenas of health care politics--the government of consumption, the government of doctors, and the government of medical technology--and illustrates how these three arenas intersect.
