Editors: Joe Sam Robinson, M. Sami Walid (Medical Center of Central Georgia, and others) and Aaron C.M. Barth
Book Description:
The United States, as well as both developed and underdeveloped countries around the world, grapple with escalating healthcare costs. The number of healthcare consumers is increasing worldwide, and while most of such an increase tilts the demographic curve toward younger age groups, older age cohorts are also increasing. These older age cohorts are particularly noticeable in developed countries where useful scientific progress has evolved substantial and extensive healthcare technologies. Access to such expensive technologies has both been widely sought and become available to healthcare consumers. This book offers prescient insights upon various ways to diminish healthcare expenses.
