Editorial Reviews

?The subject of this slim volume concerns the lessons we have learned about the delivery of health care services to individuals. Dividing the book into three parts, Budrys first traces the history of health care planning from a 1982 participant observation study of a urban Health Systems Agency and then follows with a summary and implications section. Focusing on accumulated knowledge and experience in health care needs, the author examines the three systems for controlling health care services-administrative, professional, and market.... Budrys offers a much needed sociological perspective to the study of health care planning and presents a systematic approach upon which to build for future research. The style of writing is clear and understandable. The volume has an extensive reference section and contains thorough documentation.?-Choice
