Plunkett's Health Care Industry Almanac is the only complete reference to the American Health Care Industry and its leading corporations. Whatever your purpose for researching the health care field, you'll find this massive reference book to be a valuable guide. No other source provides this book's easy-to-understand comparisons of national health expenditures, emerging technologies, patient populations, hospitals, clinics, corporations, research, Medicare, Medicaid, managed care, and many other areas of vital importance. Included in the market research sections are dozens of statistical tables covering every aspect of the industry, from Medicare expenditures to hospital utilization, from insured and uninsured populations to revenues to health care expenditures as a percent of GDP. A special area covers vital statistics and health status of the U.S. population. The corporate analysis section features in-depth profiles of the 500 major for-profit firms (which we call “The Health Care 500”) within the many industry sectors that make up the health care system, from the leading companies in pharmaceuticals to the major managed care companies. Details for each corporation include executives by title, phone, fax, website, address, growth plans, divisions, subsidiaries, brand names, competitive advantage and financial results. Purchasers of either the book or PDF version can receive a free copy of the company profiles database on CD-ROM, enabling key word search and export of key information, addresses, phone numbers and executive names with titles for every company profiled.
