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, 775 page book to be a valuable guide. No other source provides this book's easy-to-understand comparisons of national health expenditures, occupations, emerging technologies, patient populations, imports, exports, corporations, research, Medicare, Medicaid, managed care, and many other areas of vital importance. Included in the market research sections are 46 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 the printed book or PDF version may receive a free CD-ROM database of the corporate profiles, enabling export of vital corporate data for mail merge and other uses.
