"Understanding who health care consumers are and how they are changing is vital to health insurance companies, hospitals, medical personnel, pharmaceutical companies, government policymakers, and many others.

Best of Health: Demographics of Health Care Consumers is the first guide to how changes in the demographics of health care consumers are influencing health care wants and needs.

Best of Health explores the intersection between important facets of the health care industry and the consumers of health care.

Some of the topics examined include the rapid rise of health care spending, the diversity of health care consumers, the Internet's growing importance to health care, the changing relationship between medical providers and patients, the growing use of alternative medicine, the deinstitutionalization of medical care, and the change in attitudes toward disability, mental health, and even death.

The author has extracted from many sources and summarized for quick comprehension vast amounts of data about health care consumers in the U.S. Best of Health is readily usable by all levels of readers, from the layperson to the scholarly researcher or health care provider."
