Changes in Patterns of Health Care: Plus Forty Years
Sofalvi, Alan J.
American Journal of Health Education, v41 n2 p71-73 Mar-Apr 2010
In this article, the author presents an update of Herman's article ["Changes in Patterns of Health Care," "School Health Review," 1(9-14)1969] that focuses on the changes in patterns of health care. He discusses the poverty, insurance, and access to medical care as well as the quality of medical care for adults and minors. He stresses that whatever legislative decisions are made regarding health care access and costs, seeing beneficial systematic changes in the availability and cost of care that could increase the average lifespan of Americans will be time-consuming, likely taking 10 years or more.
