Encyclopedia of Health Care Management

Edited by:

July 2012 | 664 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Health care is one of today's most discussed and debated topics. From issues such as accessibility to costs to quality, the debates range widely among doctors, patients, employers, and insurers. A popular topic in political campaigns and the media, health care and health care management is also a quiet and unremitting concern in the private and personal lives of individuals who worry about someday having to choose between food and prescription drugs.

The Encyclopedia of Health Care Management will prove invaluable to libraries serving students and professionals in health and business. It will also be an essential reference for health providers and their employees, and students and professors in health and management for responsible and successful practice and administration in the health care industry.

"An enhancement to any consumer-oriented health care collection, as well as any library that is looking to develop a collection on the business aspects of heatlh care."

"This volume should be considered by academic and public libraries with large healthcare management or business collections as the only current reference on this topic."


The most comprehensive one-volume reference work on health care management published in the last 10 years, this work brings together much useful information and will appeal to a broad audience. Health science libraries, college libraries, and large public libraries will want to invest in this title.


The Encyclopedia of Health Care Management would be useful for those involved in any aspect of health care, whether as a student, instructor, practitioner, researcher, or administrator. This book would be of great use in reference collections at public, university, hospital, and corporate libraries.
