Source Notes (12): Health Care for All?

Title: Health Care for All?

Summary: Dates back to World War I, when the first national system of social insurance and medical coverage began and goes into other major horrific times we (Americans) have needed universal health insurance.

Topic: Universal health care

Category: Academic research

What is it?: An online article from the New England Journal of Medicine

Publication information: http://content.nejm.org, September 20, 2007.

Author: M. Gregg Bloche, M.D., J.D.

Location: http://content.nejm.org/cgi/content/full/357/12/1173

Accessed: February 15, 2009

Support:

Philip Bobbit, historian and legal scholar; Robert Putnam, author of Bowling Alone; John Chafee, late republican senator of Rhode Island; New America Foundation; Arnold Schwarzenegger, governor of California; John Edwards, democratic presidential candidate; Mitt Romney, republican governor of Massachusetts; Barack Obama, then-senator of Illinois; Hillary Clinton, senator of New York;

Audience and Agenda: The New Engand Journal of Medicine is a prestigeous and well-known academic journal that is published weekly and owned by the Massachusetts Medical Society. The content of this site is intended for health care professionals and students alike.

Usefulness: This site was helpful because it brought the history of health care into the story and explained how it started. I will definitely go back and use this particular article for my final project. The only part that wasn’t useful was the date of this article; unlike the other articles I have received, this one is a little outdated.
