Este libro es un breve resumen del sistema de salud en Cuba. Este isla aislada tiene, por todas las medidas, un sistema de salud que funciona mucha mejor que lo que se esperaría. Este libro explora las razones y métricas detrás de este sorprendente rendimiento. Tal vez, los métodos de Cuba pueden ser expandidos a países desarrollados que tienen sistemas demasiado caros, complicados, y injustos.

<P>As innovation moves from the lab to the market, a new research phase begins for the entrepreneur: the market research phase.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>Inspired by a new technology that can change the world, critical questions need to be addressed. Is there a market for my innovation? Who are my clients? What do they need? Is my innovation filling that gap in the market? Who are my competitors? How are they approaching the market? If these questions are unaswered, entrepreneurs meet potential investors or partners with only a basic understanding of their market.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>The objective of this book is to fill this gap. It is a practical manual that gives entrepreneurs real-world advice and tools to build a solid market model. The book provides tips, models and tools entrepreneurs can use to collect, interpret and present their market and integrate it into their business plan.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>What the entrepreneur learns in this book will help him throughout his journey. After going over the market research process, he will learn how to design and use a number of market research tools, and how to adapt them in a life science context. From building a web survey to preparing interviews to doing your own secondary research, this handbook will help him gain a comprehensive understanding of how to perform his own market research activities and how to analyze his data.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P>Finally, a number of frameworks (such as the TAM-SAM-SOM as well as the KANO Model) are described so that he can efficiently share what he has learned, using models that simply yet effectively shares findings.</P><br /><P></P><br /><P></P>

<p>This book addresses the puzzle of why the World Bank was unable to effect sweeping neoliberal health reforms in Latin America from the 1980s onward. Through the use of quantitative regional data together with interview and archival data collected during fieldwork in Argentina, Costa Rica, Peru, and Washington DC, this book argues that the answer to this puzzle is twofold. First, the World Bank has not promoted a uniformly neoliberal, monolithic agenda in health. Second, countries’ autonomy and capacity in this sector shape how the World Bank is involved in reforms. Finally, the book distinguishes neoliberal ends from means in health sector reform and traces changes in “banking on health” over time. </p>

This title includes a Foreword by John W Bachman, Professor of Medicine, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Rochester, Minnesota. Mastering the art of medical practice management requires knowledge that most physicians don't learn in medical school, residency, and fellowship training. Successful practice management in the 21st century requires physicians to understand how to organize and manage a practice, manage their finances, recruit, work with, and manage people within and outside of the practice, improve healthcare delivery and clinical outcomes, and ensure compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations. "Medical Practice Management in the 21st Century: The Handbook" addresses multiple aspects of medical practice management. It offers both background information and practical tools. The workbook format, supported by web-based tools, allows busy physicians to gain a basic understanding of many topics, determine strategies for their practices, and seek additional information when they want it. This guide will be ideal for both physicians who need business guidance as they begin their careers and physicians who are already in practice and want to enhance their business skills. Many physicians can't afford or choose not to hire a professional practice administrator or manager; this book will help them assume managerial responsibilities with the same level of confidence that they bring to clinical care. Physicians in academic medical centers who manage departments, programs, or research studies will also benefit. "This book is essential for any clinician planning to open a new practice or attempting to improve the quality and efficiency of an existing practice. Read and learn." - John Bachman MD, in the Foreword. "Written for the busy practitioner - clear, concise, and practical without any wasted space. I wish I had had this resource when I was starting practice. It's the bible for practice management, just as the "Washington Manual" was in earlier years." - Robert S Galvin, MD, Director of Global Healthcare for General Electric. "Important. Crosses many boundaries, covering a wide variety of topics. Guides physicians in developing the infrastructure that they need to succeed." - John Fallon, MD, Chief Physician Executive, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. "There is no better book or resource to use to develop the necessary proficiency to run a first-class, stellar practice than this. All who read this book will be able to ensure that every patient has a positive experience with your practice and will not only enjoy the experience but will tell other physicians, their family and their friends about you and your practice and thus make your practice thrive and prosper." - Dr Neil Baum, Clinical Associate Professor of Urology, Tulane Medical School, New Orleans, Louisiana. "I love the chapter on financial management. It is very complete and gives a non-business major a good grasp of complicated information." - Allen R. Wenner, MD, family medicine practitioner, West Columbia Family Medicine, South Carolina. "I like the format of the exhibits. In the chapter on financial management, the side-by-side problem/solution approach is easily understandable and lends itself to a solution oriented approach. I can spot my own practice's issues and immediately understand what to do without searching through a lot of text." - Tom Sena, MD, President of Raleigh Children and Adolescents Medicine, Raleigh, North Carolina. "Full of good material which I am actively planning to use. Extremely helpful!" - Dr Damian McHugh, President, Raleigh Emergency Medicine Associates, Raleigh, NC.

Nearly half of us have already accompanied a relative or friend on their journey to the end of life. Or perhaps you're among the 75 percent of Americans aged 65 and older who are dealing every day with one or more chronic medical conditions. "If only we'd understood, we would have made different choices." That's what people often say after days, months or even years of medical decision making for themselves or for a loved one.<br /><br />A perfect storm is peeking over the horizon. It is the inevitable clash of: 1) America's aging population; 2) the dwindling financial and human resources available to address their needs; and 3) our pervasive lack of health literacy. As the patient in the patient-provider relationship, only you can preserve your right to informed consent and autonomy by taking the steps necessary to achieve health literacy and be a more skilled and effective decision maker. Only you can prepare your trusted loved ones to act as informed substitute decision makers, if the need ever arises. As importantly, only you can achieve the health literacy needed to do the best job possible as an advocate for someone else.<br /><br />What is essential to being an empowered patient, a decisive health care proxy or an engaged health care professional?<i> HEALTH LITERACY</i>. It's recognizing when, how and where to access, process and understand basic health information and services needed to make informed choices.<br /><br />In the pages of <i>THE 60-MINUTE GUIDE TO HEALTH LITERACY,</i> you will find these common sense tools:<br />* Reliable resources for health care information (hyperlinked in the Kindle version)<br />* Step-by-step guides for shared decision making<br />* Vital and effective documentation needed for any health care situation<br />* A HELP Index for quick access to health literate action steps<br />By downloading the Kindle version to your smartphone, you will have all the resources of <i>THE 60-MINUTE GUIDE TO HEALTH LITERACY </i>at your fingertips.<br /><br />In <i>THE 60-MINUTE GUIDE TO HEALTH LITERACY</i>, Jo Kline shares how to:<br />* Preserve personal values with informed decision making<br />* Assemble the best team of health care providers<br />* Follow recommendations for preventive care<br />* Maintain patient autonomy in a health care emergency<br />* Practice the responsible use of medications<br />* Make respectful and informed end-of-life decisions<br /><br />Preserving the right to informed consent and to receive competent and compassionate health care and end-of-life care is entirely dependent on the decision maker's ongoing level of health literacy.<br /><br />If you don't know it already, you will soon learn that managing health care for yourself or a loved one is a journey.<br /><i>THE 60-MINUTE GUIDE TO HEALTH LITERACY</i> is the road map.
