This book provides a unique insight into the United States' health system — a growing US$2 trillion industry and an increasing focus of public concern. The author’s extensive experience as an educator, consultant, researcher and author of five well-received books on that system provides a unique resource of largely unreported cases to mine. These vivid case studies weave the history, richness and complexity of the problems faced by patients and service providers into fascinating Byzantine intrigues. They illustrate the underlying structural problems that have produced disparities in treatment, escalating costs, unsafe and inadequate care, and the demoralization of the many decent and committed people who work within the system. Highly readable, the book also offers a candor and richness in detail that is typically lacking in textbooks, academic journal articles and the popular press.

Review:

Shines a bright, penetrating light on the US health care system and exposes many of the pathologies that restrict access to care, cause harm to patients and drive up costs for everyone. The cases are real, maddening and wonderfully instructive. A must read for anyone committed to improving health and medical care. --Thomas G Rundall, Executive Associate Dean, School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley

Professor Smith is the rare author who combines scholarly rigor and the ability to engage the reader with a good story, well told. By using specific case illustrations, he persuasively conveys broad insights developed over a career spent analyzing the pathologies that infect America's health care system. And those insights, sadly, are dead on. --Gordon Bonnyman, Executive Director Tennessee Justice Center

David Barton Smith's earlier books established him as a gifted story teller. The Forensic Case Files demonstrates again his ability to bring forward the lines of development in complex stories that are crafted to illuminate their important administrative and policy implications. Both a textbook and source of useful insight for experienced senior executives, The Forensic Case Files is a hard to put down `page turner. --Gary L Filerman, PhD, Senior Vice President and Chairman Health Management and Policy Group
