"This is health policy for grown-ups . . . Mechanic brings to bear his magisterial knowledge of some of the less-traveled pathways in the health care wilderness."-Health Affairs "A comprehensive and thoughtful discussion of the myriad reasons why substantial health care reform continues to be elusive . . . will be much appreciated by readers interested in increasing their understanding of the future of health care reform."-Journal of the American Medical Association "Mechanic, one of the longest abiding and most insightful observers of American health care, has diagnosed many of the system's ills."-Inquiry Drawing on decades of experience as an active health policy participant, researcher, teacher, and consultant to the public and private sectors, David Mechanic examines the strengths and weaknesses of health care in the United States. He explains how it has evolved in ways that favor economic, professional, and political interests over those of patients. Yet, he also acknowledges that railing against these influences can achieve only so much. Instead, Mechanic suggests changes that may make it possible to convert what is best about health care in America into a well-functioning system that better serves the entire population. David Mechanic is director of the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research at Rutgers University and the national program director of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator Awards in Health Policy Research. He has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences and to the Institute of Medicine.
