Landmark textbook on health care and the US legal system released
Date:5/23/2012

WASHINGTON - The second edition of Law and the American Health Care System was released by Foundation Press on May 15, 2012. Building on its 1997 predecessor, the second edition textbook offers a comprehensive vision and analysis of the intersection of law and the U.S. health care system. Law and the American Health Care System arrives at a time of unprecedented change in how health care is organized, financed, and delivered. Throughout its major fields of study, the book focuses on how a dramatically changing legal environment influencesand in turn is influenced bya dramatically evolving health care system. The textbook not only charts the interaction of law and health care but places this interaction into a broader and international policy context encompassing the economic, social, political, and cultural environment in which health care is organized and delivered. Through the presentation of cases, statutes and regulations, and extensive discussion that includes the vast changes wrought by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the book offers an in-depth exploration of law and policy that shape key areas like access to health care, health care financing, health care quality, including the rise of new systems of care such as Accountable Care Organizations, and health care transactions in the marketplace.

Sara Rosenbaum, Harold and Jane Hirsh Professor of Health Law and Policy, George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services, and David M. Frankford, Professor of Law, Rutgers School of Law Camden, serve as the book's lead authors. They are joined by Sylvia A. Law, Elizabeth K. Dollard Professor of Law, Medicine and Psychiatry, and Rand Rosenblatt, Professor of Law, Rutgers School of Law Camden.

Lynn R. Goldman, MD, MPH, Dean of the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services said, "At this critical point in our nation's history, Sara Rosenbaum and her co-authors deliver a meticulously researched, comprehensive and dynamic analysis illuminating the ever more complicated field of law, health care and public policy. If students, policy makers, and anyone else really wants to understand the history and impact of law and public policy on the health care debate, this book is a must read."

Rayman L. Solomon, J.D., Ph.D, Dean and Professor of Law of Rutgers School of Law Camden, stated, "All case books serve to teach students an area of law. Only a few by their organization and explanation serve to systematize an important emerging field and should be consulted by students, scholars, and practitioners. Law and the American Health Care System joins this select group."
