Index
"Consumer choice and quality scorecards have been the subject of an extraordinary amount of rhetoric in the health care field. Finally, Hanes, Greenlick, and their colleagues have done us the enormous service of providing a thoughtful, comprehensive, and balanced exploration of the real issues." --Bruce Vladeck, former administrator, Health Care Financing Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services 1993-1997

"Grading Health Care is truly a first of its kind in a health care environment that is in great need of such practical guidance. Pamela Hanes and Mitch Greenlick have pulled together a series of easily understood, provocative essays on the art and science of quality reporting for a consumer audience. This book is must-reading for anyone interested in working through the complexities of translating abstract and often elusive quality information into understandable and consumer-friAndly formats." --Philip Lee, professor emeritus, University of California San Francisco Medical School and former assistant secretary of Health 1992-1997

Gaus, former director of the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services 1992-1996
