ABSTRACT

In Touch with Industry: ICAF Industry Studies 1998: Health Care   [open pdf - 1MB]

The structure of the health care industry has remained unchanged for five years, so an assessment of the health care industry would change only incrementally from that of previous years. Thus, this nontraditional study report presents several issues of concern to the group: fights of patients; implications of "Buy America;" the Medicaid program; malpractice; and euthanasia and assisted suicide. Next, the report presents five essays on major elements of the health care industry: cost containment, medical research, military medical forces in the 21 st century, ethics of health care delivery, and alternative medicine.
