Rather than concentrating on a particular health care plan, Humanizing Health Care shows how problem areas can be more clearly recognized, the pricipal issues identified, and possible options evaluated in terms of advantages, disadvantages, and consequences. Topics in the book include a discussion of futures research applied to health technology; cost-benefit and value-added applied to health care; the major requirements for personnel, facilities, and organizational relationships for future health care systems; home-based health care--alternative modes of medical management; and patient participation."Rushmer, a bioengineer, is less interested in specific blueprints for reform...than in calling for a different way of thinking about health and the health care system. His home base is policy science...His tools are computers and imagination. If this sounds dull, you're wrong. It is absorbing, lucid, mercifully compact and anti-polemical, almost totally free of policy science and computer jargon."--The New York Times Book Review
