Healthcare managers confront many difficult and complex questions. Economics for Healthcare Managers provides the economic tools managers need to simplify and improve decision making. This book provides a framework for understanding pricing, regulation, costs, market demand, profitability, and risk—issues that all healthcare managers face.

Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition features:

  • A new chapter on creating and interpreting forecasts
  • A new chapter on government intervention in healthcare markets
  • Case studies and examples that illustrate how to analyze management problems and make recommendations
  • Key concepts, discussion questions, and a glossary for each chapter

    Written in a straightforward and practical style, this book is ideal for readers with no background in economics.

    Instructor Resources: Key concepts, answers/talking points for the discussion questions in the book, solved problems, PowerPoint slides, and a test bank.
