✏To Improve Health and Health Care Book Summary : Praise for previous volumes of To Improve Health and Health Care: "The particular strength of the book is the critical nature of the articles. These are not glossy renditions of the good deeds of the foundation; rather they examine in depth both what went right and what went wrong with the projects the foundation sponsored. Anyone with an interest in improving health care in America will want to know what can be done, and perhaps even more importantly, what cannot be done even by an independent institution with substantial resources to invest in new ideas." -- Jeremy Holtzman, MD MS, University of Minnesota Medical School, Doody Publishing (2002). "This is a useful guide to both the grant seeker and the planner of similar projects who address health and healthcare needs in communities." -- Ann H. Cary, PhD, MPH, RN, George Mason University, (Doody Publishing, 1999.) Since 1972, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has been the nation's largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to health.

✏Improving the Quality of Health Care for Mental and Substance Use Conditions Book Summary : Each year, more than 33 million Americans receive health care for mental or substance-use conditions, or both. Together, mental and substance-use illnesses are the leading cause of death and disability for women, the highest for men ages 15-44, and the second highest for all men. Effective treatments exist, but services are frequently fragmented and, as with general health care, there are barriers that prevent many from receiving these treatments as designed or at all. The consequences of this are seriousâ€"for these individuals and their families; their employers and the workforce; for the nation’s economy; as well as the education, welfare, and justice systems. Improving the Quality of Health Care for Mental and Substance-Use Conditions examines the distinctive characteristics of health care for mental and substance-use conditions, including payment, benefit coverage, and regulatory issues, as well as health care organization and delivery issues. This new volume in the Quality Chasm series puts forth an agenda for improving the quality of this care based on this analysis. Patients and their families, primary health care providers, specialty mental health and substance-use treatment providers, health care organizations, health plans, purchasers of group health care, and all involved in health care for mental and substanceâ€"use conditions will benefit from this guide to achieving better care.

✏The Evolution of U S Health Care Spending Post World War Ii Book Summary : 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.
