Understanding and managing the complexity of healthcare
Rouse, William B., author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : The MIT Press, [2014]
Introduction -- Complexity of healthcare delivery -- Healthcare costs and their causes -- Impacts of healthcare price controls -- Prevention and wellness -- Chronic disease management -- Equity of care -- Technologies for care -- Data in healthcare -- Methodologies for improvement -- Facilitating change.

Breakthroughs in medical science, innovations in medical technologies, and improvements in clinical practices occur today at an increasingly rapid rate. Yet because of a fragmented healthcare delivery system, many Americans are unable to benefit from these developments. How can we design a system that can provide high-quality, affordable healthcare for everyone? In this book, William Rouse and Nicoleta Serban introduce concepts, principles, models, and methods for understanding, and improving, healthcare delivery. Approaching the topic from the perspectives of engineering and statistics, they argue that understanding healthcare delivery as a complex adaptive system will help us design a system that is more efficient, effective, and equitable. The authors use multilevel simulation models as a quantitative tool for evaluating alternate ways of organizing healthcare delivery. They employ this approach, for example, in their discussions of affordability, a prevention and wellness program, chronic disease management, and primary care accessibility for children in the Medicaid program. They also consider possible benefits from a range of technologies, including electronic health records and telemedicine; data mining as an alternative to randomized trials; conceptual and analytical methodologies that address the complexity of the healthcare system; and how these principles, models, and methods can enable transformational change.--

The happiness curve : why life gets better after 50
Rauch, Jonathan, 1960- author
New York, N.Y. : St. Martin's Press, [2018]
The voyage of life: Thomas Cole's journey -- and mine -- What makes us happy (and doesn't): the strange illogic of life satisfaction -- A timely discovery: how unsuspecting economists (and apes) found the happiness curve -- The shape of the river: time, happiness, and the curve of the U -- The expectations trap: midlife malaise is often about nothing -- The paradox of aging: why getting old makes you happier -- Crossing toward wisdom: the happiness curve has a purpose, and it's social -- Helping ourselves: how to get through the U -- Helping each other: bringing midlife out of the closet -- Epilogue: Gratitude.

Draws on cutting-edge scientific studies to discuss the U-shaped trajectory of happiness, which declines from the optimism of youth before surging upward again after age fifty, and offers ways to endure the slump during midlife.

How to change your mind : what the new science of psychedelics teaches us about consciousness, dying, addiction, depression, and transcendence
Pollan, Michael, author
New York : Penguin Press, 2018
Prologue: A new door -- A renaissance -- Natural history : bemushroomed ; Coda -- History : the first wave. The promise ; The crack-up ; Coda -- Travelogue : journeying underground. Trip one : LSD ; Trip two : psilocybin ; Trip three : 5-MeO-DMT (or, the toad) -- The neuroscience : your brain on psychedelics -- The trip treatment : psychedelics in psychotherapy. One : dying ; Two : addiction ; Three : depression ; Coda : going to meet my default mode network -- Epilogue: In praise of neural diversity.

When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety, he did not intend to write his most personal book. But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third. Thus began an adventure into various altered states of consciousness, along with a dive deep into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists. Pollan sifts the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s, when a handful of psychedelic evangelists inadvertently catalyzed a powerful backlash against what was then a promising field of research.
