Public opinion polls, media coverage, and policy debates at all levels of government and in private industry attest to the important place that health care and public health hold in the minds of the American public, policymakers, and lawmakers. The questions are well known: What effect is healthcare spending having on national and state economies? What policies will best protect the privacy of personal health information in an increasingly electronic medical system? How do we address the existant health disparities based on race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status? Essentials of Health Policy and Law provides students with a firm foundation of the basics of American health policy and law. This concise and reader-friendly text explores the policy and legal issues impacting and flowing out of the health care and public health systems in three unique ways: First, it emphasizes how the key legal and policy issues at the heart of public health interact with those of the healthcare financing and delivery systems. Second, it describes and discusses public health law and policy issues through the lenses of individual, government, professional, and marketplace autonomy and responsibility. Finally, the text unifies the content of health law and policy with the skills needed to analyze this content. Features: Chapters are structured to allow for the study of policy and law in tandem or separately. Includes a chapter on analytic skills, including how to write a policy analysis. Each chapter includes discussion questions to engage student reflection.
