Description

In this economic-clinical review of home care services, the reader finds a brief economic history of psychiatric services in this country, several models of psychiatric care, an illustration of the burdens borne by families when such services are unavailable, and strategies for developing "managed care-friendly" services programs. This book addresses real-world issues of designing services models that meet the clinical needs of an underserved population while also appealing to the economic imperatives of managed care.
