Just what the doctor ordered. In Code Red, David Dranove explains how the United States came to finance healthcare; critically examines proposals that are often touted as solutions to what ails the healthcare system, like quality report cards and consumer-directed healthcare; and provides his own sensible prescription for reform.--Jill Quadagno, author of One Nation, UninsuredThis is an excellent book and a truly valuable contribution to the discussion of healthcare in the United States. It frames the debate by providing a concise yet impressive history of healthcare in the United States and then follows it with an analysis of the available solutions. Policymakers, professionals, and students need to hear this message.--Lawton Robert Burns, editor of The Business of Healthcare InnovationThis is a well-written and thought-provoking book. Few would dispute the current U.S. health system is in crisis. The question is what to do? In this book, David Dranove offers a pragmatic assessment of possible alternatives. The reader comes away with a solid understanding of how basic economic concepts and improved information systems could be combined to improve performance and expand coverage.--William D. White, Cornell University
