Product Description:
 
Decision making in health care means navigating through a complex and tangled web of diagnostic and therapeutic uncertainties, patient preferences and values, and costs. In addition, medical therapies may include side effects, surgery may lead to undesirable complications, and diagnostic technologies may produce inconclusive results. In many clinical and health policy decisions it is necessary to counterbalance benefits and risks, and to trade off competing objectives such as maximizing life expectancy vs optimizing quality of life vs minimizing the required resources. This textbook plots a clear course through these complex and conflicting variables. It clearly explains and illustrates tools for integrating quantitative evidence-based data and subjective outcome values in making clinical and health policy decisions. An accompanying CD-ROM features solutions to the exercises, PowerPointŪ presentations of the illustrations, and sample models and tables.

By Eggmom
I had to use this for a textbook in a master's level decision support class and I thought it was terrible. There much better texts on the topic. I'm sorry for you if you have to use this one for your class!

1.0 out of 5 stars.  Waste of money, May 15, 2014
By Brad Braman
Poorly written. Inapplicable examples. No wonder healthcare is so screwed up if this is the way we are teaching the leaders of the field.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Good text, March 12, 2014
By D. Jones
This is a well written text on health care decision making. It is popular enough that the publisher was sold out at the beginning of the semester. The book is laid out in a very intuitive fashion and is written in a way that emphasizes important points without overdoing them. If you need a text for medical decision making, this is a good one.

4.0 out of 5 stars.  Decision Make Away!, April 25, 2013
By vegeta
This book is helpful for those that have limited experience in the medical field and want to pursue information technology within the medical field. It shows you how decision making systems work within hospital organizations.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Simply excelent !!!, June 20, 2006
By Ales Tichopad
It is the most helpful book on decision processes in health economics and outcomes research. Not alone, it is fully compliant with the TreeAge software as far as terminology is concerned.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Refreshing Look at Medical Decision Making, June 10, 2003
By Buchi
Clearly written! Excellent choice of exercises! This will make a good reading for anyone even remotely interested in making decisions in health care or medicine. The methods and techniques elucidated here will be useful at all levels of the health care system. Get a copy of this book and do not drop it until you've read it all. Probably, the most comprehensible state-of-the-art textbook of medical decision sciences devoid of undue jargon.
