Health Policy Analysis: An Interdisciplinary Approach analyzes current U.S. health policy and proposes various alternatives for developing future health policy without pushing a single solution set - rather, it considers the perspectives of economics, political science, management, communications, technology, and public health."--BOOK JACKET.
