About the book

Although health care access has tremendously grown from tiny seed to a mature crop in the 21th century, there is still need for continuous improvements in quality, value enhancment, public and private partnerships, and the need for increasing trust in our healthcare delivery systems. This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state of basic health care structure and units. The book will discuss comprehensive barriers for health care access, intervention studies for communicable and non-communicable diseases, state of the-art in patient’s diagnostics procedures, and experience based revision of health care policy for future. This book should be useful for medical students, practioners and health managers.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Kardum

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
