Abstract
This open access book outlines the challenges of supporting the health and wellbeing of older adults around the world and offers examples of solutions designed by stakeholders, healthcare providers, and public, private and nonprofit organizations in the United States. The solutions presented address challenges including: providing person-centered long-term care, making palliative care accessible in all healthcare settings and the home, enabling aging-in-place, financing long-term care, improving care coordination and access to care, delivering hospital-level and emergency care in the home and retirement community settings, merging health and social care, supporting people living with dementia and their caregivers, creating communities and employment opportunities that are accessible and welcoming to those of all ages and abilities, and combating the stigma of aging. The innovative programs of support and care in Aging Well serve as models of excellence that, when put into action, move health spending toward a sustainable path and greatly contribute to the well-being of older adults.

With healthcare expenditures in the United States currently totaling over $3.1 trillion and the prospect that this spending will continue to increase exponentially over the next several years, an appreciation of the evolution of healthcare policy in the United States and the subsequent changes that are expected to occur in the delivery and financing of these services is critical for those in the healthcare field.

The book includes coverage of these topics: Historical context in which healthcare evolved in the 20th century; Origins of Medicare and Medicaid and the challenges facing these programs; Understanding quality and cost in health policy; The benefits and challenges of health information technology; The economics of healthcare; Proposed models for payment reform; International systems of care and consumer-driven healthcare; Understanding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Abstract
The Handbook of Health Services Research is a reference for all aspects of the field of health services and outcomes research. It addresses the increasing need for comprehensive, yet balanced, information in a field that welcomes various disciplines: medicine, public health, statistics, economics, management, policy and information technology. This well-organized reference is an indispensable source of information for everyone who seeks to develop understanding of health systems and to learn about historical, political, and socioeconomic factors that influence health policies at the global, national, regional and local level. Specifically, the Handbook helps readers: Recognize core concepts of health services and outcomes research, such as, need, access, equity, quality and safety; Become familiar with social, political, organizational, behavioral and economic theories that have influenced health systems designs; Learn about frameworks developed for evaluating the organization, financing, delivery, utilization and outcomes of health services; Get an introduction to methods of comparative effectiveness research, program evaluation, health technology assessment and health economics; Identify types and sources of data appropriate for generating valid and reliable information about the delivery of health services; Learn about strengths and weaknesses of various research designs used to study health services and policy issues. The online version of the Handbook of Health Services Research is in the format of a dynamically updated knowledge base, offering search tools, cross-referencing across chapters and linking to supplement data, other major reference works and external articles. The Handbook of Health Services Research is accessible at the level of graduate students even if it is not their focus area. This includes students with various backgrounds: medicine, public health, statistics, economics, management or information technology.

Abstract
Fundamentals of Healthcare Finance, in its second edition, continues to be ideal for individuals needing basic healthcare finance skills. This easy-to-read, content-filled book presents a broad overview of healthcare finance, but focuses on tasks that are essential to the operational management of clinical services, including estimating costs and profits, planning and budgeting, analyzing new equipment purchases, using metrics to monitor operations, and working with financial statements. To assist the learning process, this book includes critical concepts, practical scenarios, self-test questions, industry-practice sidebars, and a running glossary. The second edition has been thoroughly updated, including its many real-world examples. In addition, a section on healthcare reform has been added that includes discussions of value-based purchasing, bundling, accountable care organizations, and medical homes. Additional features in the second edition include updated accounting coverage that conforms to the latest AICPA formats and a new student engagement tool, For Your Consideration sidebars, which present scenarios designed to make students think about issues, sometimes controversial, currently in the news.

As the incidence and prevalence of many clinical urologic conditions increase significantly in older adults, the practice of urology involves a need for advanced knowledge of the basic principles of geriatrics. Geriatric Urology outlines important topics in the care of elderly urology patients. The first section covers the biology of aging, changes in the genitourinary system, and common diseases including urologic conditions that may serve as warning signs of other disorders. Section two covers geriatric syndromes and implications for urologic care including frailty, polypharmacy, dementia, , and wound healing. Urologic conditions in older adults are explored in detail including urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary tract infection, nocturia, and benign prostate diseases. Other topics covered include obtaining informed consent, development of advance directives, palliative medicine and care of the dying patient.

Abstract
Healthcare Changes and the Affordable Care Act: A Physician Call to Action provides guidance, examples, and information on processes and timelines for physicians based on the implementation of The Affordable Care Act (ACA) that was established in 2010. This volume focuses on how geriatricians and other healthcare professionals can be engaged in responding to the roll-out of the ACA in their communities, and through this engagement assume leadership roles in local hospitals, healthcare organizations, and medical societies to advance quality improvement and new models of care for older adults. In-depth chapters provide an update on quality improvement efforts at the state level as well as changes in Medicaid financing and the significant impact this will have for older adults, particularly dual-eligibles. Many elements of the ACA are yet to be rolled out and many healthcare decisions are yet to be made. Healthcare Changes and the Affordable Care Act: A Physician Call to Action will guide healthcare decision makers and help them to play a leadership role in advancing quality care for older adults in our changing healthcare environment.

Abstract
As a contribution to the search for suitable and sustainable solutions to finance rising medical care expenditures, the book proposes a typology of healthcare financing and insurance schemes, based on the dimensions of basic vs. supplementary services and mandatory vs. voluntary coverage, to analyse the design and the complex interactions between various financing and insurance arrangements in several OECD countries. This study provides a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the financial and organisational structures of different countries' healthcare financing and insurance schemes. Its main contributions are the development of a novel and rigorous theoretical framework analysing the economic rationales for the optimal design of healthcare financing and insurance schemes, and an empirical and institutional analysis investigating the consequences for efficiency and affordability of the complex interactions between basic and supplementary sources of financing. The distinction between basic and supplementary health care insurance, and how they are regulated, is of fundamental importance to health care financing. This book makes a welcome contribution to the literature on this subject, providing insights into how the problem is addressed in a number of countries. It will be of considerable interest to a wide variety of scholars and practitioners.--James RG Butler, Director, Australian Centre for Economic Research on Health (ACERH), The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. This book offers a detailed analysis of supplementary health insurance and its use in several nations. In doing so, it provides important insights into health insurance reform options relevant to nearly every wealthy nation.--Alan M. Garber, MD, PhD, Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Professor and Director, Center for Health Policy and Center for Primary Care and Outcomes Research, Stanford University, USA. Francesco Paolucci gives an interesting theoretical overview of the rationale for different systems of health care finance, focusing on the interrelationship between mandatory and supplementary or voluntary systems. He illustrates his theoretical arguments with a revealing empirical analysis, taking into account carefully the specific institutional features of the different countries. His analysis is interesting for academics as well as for policy-makers.--Erik Schokkaert, Department of Economics, KULeuven, Belgium.
