Pricing the priceless : a health care conundrum by Joseph P Newhouse( Book )

15 editions published between 1459 and 2004 in English and Thai and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Pricing the Priceless, Joseph Newhouse explains the different pricing systems and how they affect resource allocation and efficiency. All pricing arrangements, he explains, involve trade-offs. The advantages of more inclusive bases of payment, for example, may be offset by incentives for providers to select good risks or to stint on the delivery of services."--Jacket
An economic analysis of public library services by Joseph P Newhouse( Book )

19 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study addresses itself to several questions important to most public libraries. How should the library allocate its book budget? What kinds of books should it tend to buy? What types of households use the library? Why do some households not use the library? What is the cost of the various services provided by the library? What specific steps can the library take to improve its services? What are the library's options in choosing among the different circulation systems? For how long should the library allow books to be checked out? How frequently should overdue notices be sent out? Is an investment in a security system worthwhile? These questions were studied in the context of the Beverly Hills (California) Public Library. A methodology for determining answers to these questions, as well as to other questions that arose during the investigation was developed. Although answers will vary from library to library, the methodology is quite general and should prove useful at many public libraries. The user survey and community survey questionnaires, and a bibliography are appended. (Author/SJ)

Reimbursement under uncertainty : what to do if one cannot identify an efficient hospital by Joseph P Newhouse( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report comments on methods for identifying an efficient hospital. A direct approach to this task is to estimate frontier cost or production functions; i.e., determine hospitals that, for a given output, seem to be minimizing cost. The difficulty comes in the measurement. The existing literature usually assumes that the output of hospitals is simply patient days or stays or both, neglecting both case mix variation and the quality of the services delivered. The author concludes that the prospects for identifying efficient hospitals through direct estimation of cost and production functions are not good and that reimbursement should be partly a function of the firm's observed cost and not purely prospective

The status of health in demand estimation : beyond excellent, good, fair, and poor by Willard G Manning( Book )

11 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study addresses two issues. (1) What can one gain by using more comprehensive measures of health status in demand estimation than a common single item measure? Would you rate your health as excellent, good, fair, or poor? The authors find that by using multidimensional and less-coarse health status measures they achieve an increase in precision approximately equivalent to a 10 percent increase in sample size. (2) What is the consequence of employing postdiction (i.e., predicting utilization from health status measured after the fact) rather than prediction? Using a simple, but plausible, model, the authors show that such measures cause the estimates to be inconsistent; the direction of the inconsistency generally cannot be signed a priori. Empirically the direction is generally away from zero
On having your cake and eating it too : econometric problems in estimating the demand for health services by Joseph P Newhouse( Book )

11 editions published between 1974 and 1979 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses certain methodological problems in the economics literature related to the demand for medical care. There are two principal problems examined: misspecification of how insurance affects demand, and aggregation across services or across individuals. It is shown that in both cases estimates contained in the literature are inconsistent. Where possible, the direction of the inconsistency is obtained a priori. The paper also makes estimates of the magnitude of the inconsistency; the demand elasticities estimated in the economics literature may be overstated by a factor of three or more
Variation in health care spending : target decision making, not geography by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Variation in Health Care Spending investigates geographic variation in health care spending and quality for Medicare beneficiaries as well as other populations, and analyzes Medicare payment policies that could encourage high-value care. This report concludes that regional differences in Medicare and commercial health care spending and use are real and persist over time. Furthermore, there is much variation within geographic areas, no matter how broadly or narrowly these areas are defined. The report recommends against adoption of a geographically based value index for Medicare payments, because the majority of health care decisions are made at the provider or health care organization level, not by geographic units. Rather, to promote high value services from all providers, Medicare and Medicaid Services should continue to test payment reforms that offer incentives to providers to share clinical data, coordinate patient care, and assume some financial risk for the care of their patients."--Publisher's description
The economics of group practice by Joseph P Newhouse( Book )

16 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paper presents a theoretical and empirical discussion of how costs of outpatient medical practice vary with the size of the group providing services. It focuses upon the incentives facing the individual physician to keep the costs of his practice down and his work effort high. Cost and revenue sharing schemes are more prevalent as group size increases; therefore any individual physician is less likely to have to bear the financial consequences of his decision. Likewise, the reward he obtains from additional work effort falls. Thus, we would predict that total costs would rise as an individual physician's share of costs falls because of greater X-inefficiency, and that hours worked would fall as the individual physician's share of marginal revenue falls. Implications of our analysis for public policy is considered. The findings should give pause to those who believe that large clinics or large groups can give more efficient care than physicians working along or in small groups and hence that group practice should be subsidized

Handbook of health economics by A. J Culyer( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbook of Health Economics provide an up-to-date survey of the burgeoning literature in health economics. As a relatively recent subdiscipline of economics, health economics has been remarkably successful. It has made or stimulated numerous contributions to various areas of the main discipline: the theory of human capital; the economics of insurance; principal-agent theory; asymmetric information; econometrics; the theory of incomplete markets; and the foundations of welfare economics, among others. Perhaps it has had an even greater effect outside the field of economics, introducing terms such as opportunity cost, elasticity, the margin, and the production function into medical parlance. Indeed, health economists are likely to be as heavily cited in the clinical as in the economics literature. Partly because of the large share of public resources that health care commands in almost every developed country, health policy is often a contentious and visible issue; elections have sometimes turned on issues of health policy. Showing the versatility of economic theory, health economics and health economists have usually been part of policy debates, despite the vast differences in medical care institutions across countries. The publication of the first Handbook of Health Economics marks another step in the evolution of health economics
Interim report of the Committee on Geographic Variation in Health Care Spending and Promotion of High-Value Care : preliminary committee observations by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Interim Report of the Committee on Geographic Variation in Health Care Spending and Promotion of High-Value Health Care: Preliminary Committee Observations is designed to provide the committee's preliminary observations for the 113th Congress as it considers further Medicare reform. This report contains only key preliminary observations related primarily to the committee's commissioned analyses of Medicare Parts A (Hospital Insurance program), B (Supplementary Medical Insurance program) and D (outpatient prescription drug benefit), complemented by other empirical investigations. It does not contain any observations related to the committee's commissioned analyses of the commercial insurer population, Medicare Advantage, or Medicaid, which will be presented in the committee's final report after completion of quality-control activities. This interim report excludes conclusions or recommendations related to the committee's consideration of the geographic value index or other payment reforms designed to promote high value care. Additional analyses are forthcoming, which will influence the committee's deliberations. These analyses include an exploration of how Medicare Part C (Medicare Advantage) and commercial spending, utilization, and quality vary compared with, and possibly are influenced by, Medicare Parts A and B spending, utilization, and quality. The committee also is assessing potential biases that may be inherent to Medicare and commercial claims-based measures of health status. Based on this new evidence and continued review of the literature, the committee will confirm the accuracy of the observations presented in this interim report and develop final conclusions and recommendations, which will be published in the committee's final report"--Publisher's description
Moral hazard in health insurance by Amy Finkelstein( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this short and accessible book, Amy Finkelstein—winner of the 2012 John Bates Clark award—tackles the tricky question of moral hazard, which is the tendency to take risks when the cost will be borne by others. Kenneth J. Arrow's seminal 1963 paper, “Uncertainty and the Welfare Economics of Medical Care"—included in the volume—was one of the first to explore the implication of moral hazard for healthcare, and in this book, Finkelstein examines this issue in the context of contemporary American health care policy. Showcasing research from a 1972 RAND experiment and her own findings from an
