Analyzing Form, Function, and Financing of the U.S. Health Care System tells the story of the U.S. health care system by using a narrative approach identifying function rather than the more common data-driven focus on structure. It presents policy decisions we have made about our health care system and analyzes some of their consequences to better understand the choices we have. To facilitate this, the book is divided into four major sections. Section I is mostly "about" the health care system. It describes several theoretical models that provide a foundation for the structure of the U.S. health care system. Section II provides a description of the form, or organization, of the U.S. health care delivery system. It presents a comprehensive overview of the entire health care delivery system, including identifying all levels of care. Section III focuses on financing, beginning with a description of the economic and political values that determine how we finance our system. It describes health insurance, from the perspective of both the consumer and the provider, and discusses how money moves through the system. It concludes with a discussion and analysis of cost and cost control efforts. Section IV describes some of the more important efforts in health care reform, including several targeted programs that are a significant part of the U.S. health care system, such as Medicare and Medicaid. It also describes other targeted programs within the U.S. health care system and explores how other countries with economies similar to that of the United States organize and finance their health care systems.

Mit seiner Unternehmensführung ist Toyota seit langem Vorbild für Firmen aus den unterschiedlichsten Branchen. Fast alle Automobilhersteller versuchten mehr oder weniger erfolgreich das legendäre Toyota-Produktionssystem (TPS) zu kopieren, das zum Ziel hat, die Kundenzufriedenheit in den drei Bereichen Qualität, Lieferzeit und Kosten zu erhöhen. Aufgrund des verschärften Wettbewerbs in der Automobilbranche drängt sich jetzt die Frage nach den Faktoren des Erfolgs immer mehr in den Mittelpunkt. Jeffrey K. Liker befasst sich in seinem Buch „Der Toyota Weg“ ausführlich mit dem warum und wieso. Aus zahlreichen Interviews und eigenen Anschauungen filtert der Autor die 14 Managementprinzipien heraus, die den Kern des Toyota-Erfolgs ausmachen. Diese Prinzipien untermauert er eindrucksvoll mit einer Fülle von Details, Anekdoten und Interview-Auszügen. Leicht verständlich erklärt er dem Leser die Managementsysteme, die Denkweise und die Philosophie, auf denen der Erfolg von Toyota basiert. So vermittelt er wertvolle Erkenntnisse, die sich auf jeden beliebigen Geschäftszweig bzw. jede Geschäftssituation übertragen lassen.
