Los hospitales y la revolución de la asistencia sanitaria
AbstractA lively and compelling account of several major events that are beginning to revolutionize the way the world looks after the health of its people. Focused on the place of hospitals in this health care revolution, the book uses numerous examples and case studies from hospitals in New York City to health units in Bangkok to illustrate how changing times and changing circumstances are revolutionizing the ways in which doctors relate to patients and hospitals treat their customers. Throughout the book, an effort is made to help readers understand how certain specific changes, whether introduced by design or by force of circumstance, are now converging to form a noble, humanitarian, and momentous revolution in health care the world over. The book will make fascinating reading for anyone interested in seeing how mankinds desire for social equity, its hatred of injustice, and its wish to help the sick and disadvantaged are finding expression in an exciting movement to which hospitals the world over are making a major contribution
