520 |a With this first monograph, Springer-Verlag launches an unusual publishing venture. The purpose of the Springer Series on Industry and Health Care is to explore in depth the current and potential future role of industry­ both management and labor in all private sector enterprises-as a financer of health care benefits, as a provider of health care services, and as an extremely influential "consumer" of health care. The assumption behind the series is that private industry has the capabil­ ity, as an alternative to increased government intervention, to effect major change in the health care delivery system and is beginning to show evidence of exercising that influence. The subject matter covered by the series crosses boundaries between disciplines and specialities-occupational medicine, medical care, public health, economics, business administration, law, public policy, medical sociology-and arises in disparate arenas-labor-manage­ ment relations, corporate negotiations with insurance carriers, physician­ patient interactions, public policy, and politics. The Springer Series will draw much of its material from interdisciplinary working conferences, will analyze and synthesize the discussions, add timely background material, and be published within no more than six months of the conferences on which they build. The series will consist of four monographs a year and two volumes of background papers
