The future of health policy by Victor R Fuchs( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Americans are understandably concerned about the runaway costs of medical care and the fact that one citizen out of seven is without health insurance coverage. Solving these problems is a top priority for the Clinton administration, but as Victor Fuchs shows, the task is enormously complex. In this book Fuchs, America's foremost health economist, provides the reader with the necessary concepts, facts, and analyses to fully comprehend the complicated issues of health policy. He shows why health care reform that benefits society as a whole will unavoidably burden certain individuals and groups. Fuchs addresses such central questions as cost containment, managed competition, technology assessment, poverty and health, children's health, and national health insurance. Comparing the U.S. health care system with those of other nations, he shows, for instance, that the Canadian system works far better for Canadians than the American system works for Americans. Yet he cautions against thinking that the United States could easily adopt the Canadian system, given its very different social and political underpinnings. The future of U.S. health policy, Fuchs argues, is tightly linked to three basic questions. First, how can we disengage health insurance from employment? Second, how can we tame, but not destroy, technologic change in health care? And finally, how can we cope with the runaway medical costs of an aging society? In a striking passage, he writes that as financial and ethical pressures mount, we will probably see the right to death with dignity transformed into an expectation and eventually into an obligation. For anyone who wants a reliable guide through the myriad proposals on health care reform, this book is must reading
The health economy by Victor R Fuchs( Book )

16 editions published between 1900 and 2001 in English and Japanese and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author provides not only facts but a perspective on the issue of cost, efficiency, access, and quality - and a simple framework for thinking about them. He adresses a broad range of questions, including the following: What determines health care costs? Is medical care taking the place of religion in postindustrial society? Why doesn't the United States have national health insurance? How can we balance market competition and government regulation in medical care? Why are physicians losing their control of medical care? Why is there such a strong corelation between education and health?

Economic aspects of health by Victor R Fuchs( Book )

20 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike earlier work in medical economics, which has focused on medical care, these ten papers stress the production and consequences of health itself. They reveal a serious concern with real-world health problems in their investigation of such subjects as infant mortality, life expectancy, morbidity, and disability. These papers are unusual, as well, in bringing to bear on these problems new and powerful theoretical and statistical tools. They draw on, and in some cases are, original sources for new bodies of data. As such, Economic Aspects of Health comprises a useful blend of relevance and r

"A preliminary investigation of two specification error problems in truncated dependent variable models is reported. It is shown that heteroscedasticity in a tobit model results in biased estimates when the model is misspecified. This differs from the OLS model where estimates are still consistent though inefficient. The second problem examined is aggregation. An appropriate nonlinear least squares regression model is derived for situations when the micro-level model fits a tobit framework but only aggregate data are available"--NBER website
