For this tenth edition of a text/CD-ROM package, Young (Everest College-Arlington Midcities) and Proctor (director, medical assisting program, Butler County Community College) incorporate an approach that is reflected in the book's subtitle: an applied learning approach. There is new information on procedures for managing an office, and new material on how the HIPAA Privacy Rule benefits the healthcare industry and the patient. Also new to this edition is the integration of administrative concepts into discussions on the various diseases and conditions within each medical specialty. This feature is intended to transcend the traditional separation of administrative and clinical topics. Each clinical specialty chapter has been revised, with expanded focus on medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, and pathophysiology. The CD-ROM contains scenarios and questions, anatomy and physiology animations, and a demo derived from a medical office software program, allowing students to practice front office skills.
