Now, there is an authoritative microfiche program designed specifically for health care professionals that provides literature focusing on national health care and related vital issues. Health Care puts previously difficult-to-acquire government documents, government-sponsored studies, and surveys by private agencies into one comprehensive, accessible collection of full-text documents.

This series is an important research tool for professionals working in health maintenance organizations, health science libraries, long-term care facilities, and hospitals. Institutions supporting programs in health-related areas such as public health, hospital administration, nursing, allied health sciences, social work, medicine, and public planning find material on such significant and timely topics as:

  • malpractice
  • abortion
  • drug dependency
  • OSHA
  • social services
  • national health insurance
  • genetics
  • research methods

Health Care is assembled from the holdings of three prime repositories of health care literature: Parklawn Health Library in Rockville, Maryland; Parklawn Health Library in Hyattsville, Maryland; and the National Health Planning Information Center of Hyattsville, Maryland.

The collection is arranged into 16 relevant subject categories:

  • Health Bibliographies
  • Health Education
  • Health Equipment & Technology
  • Health Facilities
  • Health Legislation
  • Health Planning
  • Health Services
  • Life-Style Related to Health Care
  • Health Economics
  • Health & Environmental Factors
  • Health Organization & Administration
  • Health Information Systems
  • Health Manpower
  • Health Regulation
  • Health Statistics
  • Special Issues in Health Care

A printed guide provides control and access to the thousands of microfiche in both the base collection and the updates.
