Beschreibung

This is a new health economics textbook with a difference. It is based firmly in the discipline of economics and, as such, it fills a gap in the health economics market. But, unlike other texts in the area, it is very explicit about the distributive implications of economic models and it
provides clear rathionale for public involvement in the market for health care. It separatesthe efficiency reasons for public involvement(based on notions of 'market failure') from the equity reasons(based on the views of society that health care should be distributed according to the notion of
health needs rather than according to ability to pay).
The book illustrates the distributional aspects of money flows in the financing and provision of health care, and discusses who are the gainers and who are the losers under different financing arrangements. A central part of the book contains a discussion of those techniques that are increasingly
being used to aid decisions about how to distribute health care. Beyond the parameters included in economic evaluation techniques such as cost- benefit analysis and cost-effectiveness analysis, the book discusses some key ethical issues that are relevant for decision-makers when setting health care
priorities.

Pressestimmen

The book succeeds in explaining how health economics can be useful and how a better understanding of the depth of the problems that society faces in the distribution of health care can help us address problems in a systematic and incremental fashion... it is a remarkably comprehensive yet accessible text and should prove to be a valuable addition to [the] bookshelf. International Journal of Epidemiology ... interesting, easy to read, and enlightening about economic theory and its application to healthcare... The subjects are presented in a logical, easy to follow sequence, each chapter building appropriately on those that precede it. Doody's Journal
