The question of health care in the United States has propelled a demand for reform and sparked a frenzied debate on the structure of that reform. This volume addresses the possible consequences of too-hasty and ill-advised changes and discusses what characterizes a truly excellent practice of medicine; it also addresses the place of basic research in maintaining excellence. The book touches as well on the role of public health as part of the process of allocation of health care resources.
