Addressing the problems of healthcare in the United States, believe Cohn (a board-certified general surgeon now with Cambridge Management Group) and Hough (business of health, Carey Business School, Johns Hopkins U.), requires the "perspectives and expertise of physicians and economists, nurses and accountants, technicians and strategists" addressing both micro and macro aspects of the system. They have organized this collection on the business of healthcare into three volumes that in turn address healthcare management at the level of the individual medical practice, healthcare organizations, and the healthcare sector as a whole. The first volume includes ten chapters discussing the management of a solo practice, joining and leaving a practice, medical practice performance measurement, creating a culture of accountability, managing difficult physicians, practice promotion and marketing, managing the revenue cycle, and the future of the individual practice. The volume on healthcare organizations includes nine chapters addressing such topics as mending the gap between physicians and hospital executives, the intersection of information technology and care delivery, complementary and alternative medicine, liability risk management, and pastoral care. "Improving systems of care" is the subtitle of the third volume, which includes 11 chapters discussing topics such as impact-driven disaster response in a healthcare setting, the Massachusetts healthcare insurance plan, market dynamics and financing strategies in the development of medical technologies, a patient's perspective on improving systems of care, the roles of physicians and business executives in moving ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace, and the cost of end-of-life care.
