A streak of hypocrisy : reactions to the global financial crisis and generational debt by Jeremy Sammut ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This paper examines the policy challenges associated with the ageing of the Australian population through the prism of the global financial crisis. The paper observes that much of the commentary prompted by the financial crisis has featured a reaction against credit-driven consumption, the so-called "debt binge" that has plunged household savings into the red in recent years, and a shift in sentiment that favours traditional values such as thrift." --Executive summary p. vii

The false promise of GP super clinics : part 1 : preventive care by Jeremy Sammut ( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: According to the Rudd's Government's preventive health policy, spending more taxpayers money on so-called preventive primary care will stem the obesity and lifestyle-related chronic disease epidemics, keep people well and out of hospital, and ensure the long-term sustainability of Medicare as the population ages into the 21st century. Evidence-based policy is the government's mantra. This policy monograph analyses the implications of the government's preventive health agenda which is centred around its GP Super Clinics policy and finds that the evidence does not support the claims that are frequently made about the long-run benefits of focusing more heavily on prevention
The false promise of gp super clinics by Jeremy Sammut ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: GP Super Clinics delivering coordinated chronic disease care are promoted as an effective method of addressing the major challenges facing the Australian health system in relation to ageing and chronic disease. This monograph examines the evidence which strongly suggests that Super Clinics will not, as has been promised, lower health costs or take the pressure off hospitals

Why public hospitals are overcrowded : ten points for policy makers by Jeremy Sammut ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Beside the perennial and serious problem of ever-lengthening waiting lists for elective surgery, major public hospitals are unable to provide timely emergency treatment and unplanned admission to a hospital bed for significant numbers of acutely ill patients. The technical cause of the hospital crisis and the nationwide shortage of acute inpatient beds is 25 years of cuts to public hospital beds, while the systemic cause is the misallocation of resources away from frontline, bed-based hospital care and the corresponding growth in the size, cost and complexity of the state government bureaucracies that mismanage the public hospital system. Health bureaucrats and select public sector interest groups routinely claim that greater public spending on prevention and on alternative models of care will solve the crisis. These politically convenient myths and misconceptions have convinced bed-phobic state and federal governments that opening more beds is unnecessary. This paper states the case for structural reform to ensure the Australian hospital system is equipped to cope with the pressures created by an ageing population
How the NSW coalition should govern health : strategies for microeconomic reform by David Gadiel ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: In an ever-tightening fiscal environment, the focus of NSW health policy must be the microeconomic reform of the rigid, public service monopoly model of public hospital care. The adoption of market or private sector methods, including greater involvement of private operators in the delivery of public health service, should be encouraged to enhance productivity and improve access to quality hospital services at the least cost
Like the curate's egg : a market-based response and alternative to the Bennett Report by Jeremy Sammut ( Book )

Do not damage and disturb : on child protection failures and the pressure on out-of-home care in Australia by Jeremy Sammut ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: This monograph shows that the rising size, cost, and complexity of the out-of-home care system in Australia is directly linked to child protection failures. Children are entering care later and more damaged, and are spending longer in care due to the misguided emphasis placed on family preservation by child welfare agencies
Overcoming governance and cost challenges for Australian public hospitals : the foundation trust alternative by Jeremy Sammut ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: Australia will face problems funding its public hospital and other publicly funded health services if cost increases continue at the current rate in the context of ever-increasing use and an ageing population. The challenges of sustainably financing the cost of health will be exacerbated by inefficiencies in the public hospital sector—unless productivity improvements reduce the quantity of public resources consumed by public hospitals. This report identifies and discusses some of the major governance issues that impede public hospital performance and that can be revised within the existing Medicare framework via state government-initiated reforms, principally by adopting quasi market-based initiatives. Alternative governance arrangements for public hospitals can address existing management problems and also mimic the key factors that international studies show account for better management and superior hospital performance. The Foundation Trust hospital management and service provision model was introduced into the National Health Service (NHS) in England by the Blair Labor government. Foundation Trusts combine true managerial independence with genuine financial accountability. Trust hospital boards of directors and CEOs are responsible for managing the hospital's budget, setting the employment terms and conditions of staff, and overseeing all other operational matters. Adapting the Trust model to the Australian health system can improve the performance of public hospitals—especially if ‘corporatisation' is complemented by a broader microeconomic reform agenda encompassing competitive pricing and selective privatisations. This would help control the escalating health expenditure and substantially contribute to the long-term sustainability of the health system as demand rises and population ages
