Examining the combined impact of technology and the increasingly competitive market on the delivery and financing of health care, this volume makes a significant contribution to an issue of major importance to the American people. Health care has become a major industry that is changing rapidly and strikingly. This contributor volume focuses on the interplay among technology, the changing environment of health care, and its implications for future technological innovation. Particular focus is placed on the hospital in light of changes in federal funding (Medicare's prospective payment system, using diagnosis-related groups) with its orientation towards cost efficiency and cost-reducing technology. Academics, practitioners, and government personnel involved in hospital management, health care, and policy will find this volume a major resource. This book is a collection of 18 papers by leading authorities inspired by the 1987 Conference on Health Technology Adoption in a DRG Age. It is divided into four sections: Technology and Health Care Content; Technology and the Health Care Organization; Technology and the Changing Environment; Implications for Technology Policy
Why I Love Dogs is about the love story between people and their beloved pets. It is meant to be a conversation piece for families, to help them share the entire cycle of joy, love, and loss that come when a family opens their hearts to a pet. This book brings up questions that I had when I loved and lost a pet but does not pretend to know all of the answers. It also gives a great sense of hope that the experience of sharing the love of a pet is more than worth the sorrow that happens when the pet passes on. There is some mystery regarding what happens when they leave us, but God has a purpose and plan for all of His beloved creation. He put them here for a reason, and His eye is on the sparrow. In many cases, the cycle of love continues as we open our hearts yet again to another pet. All of them are unique treasures and blessings in our lives.
