The Fragmentation of U.S. Health Care
Causes and Solutions
Reviews and Awards
"This volume contains some of the most cogent thinking assembled to date on the defining characteristic of the U.S. health care system: fragmentation. Elhauge presents a nuanced portrait of the causes and consequences of atomized decision making in health care. At a time of national debate about the future shape of health policy, the essays contained in this book and the various paths to reform they demarcate constitute required reading."

Associate Professor of Health Economics and Policy, Harvard School of Public Health
"To make sense of our nonsensical healthcare system, Professor Einer Elhauge has assembled the nation's leading professors in law, medicine, economics, health, business, and political science. Their conversation offers a deeply incisive, nuanced, and accessible discussion. It should be required reading for every scholar of health policy and every member of Congress."
-- Amitabh Chandra
Professor of Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School of Government
"In The Fragmentation of U.S. Health Care, Professor Elhauge and his colleagues offer a rich and provocative collection of perspectives. Policymakers and researchers alike will learn from these reflections on a set of critical problems for health care reform. The volume could not be better timed."

"In this illuminating volume, Einer Elhauge has assembled a top-flight interdisciplinary group of scholars to explain the root causes of the dysfunctional structures of the U.S. health care system, and to suggest possible solutions. The book is essential reading for scholars and policymakers who seek to understand the complexities of health care delivery in the U.S. and identify avenues for systemic improvement."
