Health policy issues : an economic perspective by Paul J Feldstein( )

25 editions published between 1999 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 4,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Healthcare affects the lives of most Americans and absorbs a large portion of the United States' resources. It also is continually debated, prompting ongoing legislative changes and market restructuring. One of the best ways to understand healthcare, in all its complexity, is from an economic perspective -- that is, from the perspective of the financial self-interest of all involved parties. "Health Policy Issues: An Economic Perspective" takes just such an approach. Paul J. Feldstein describes the forces that press for change in healthcare and explains why the US health system has evolved to its current state. The book's 38 concise, issue-oriented chapters cover various aspects of the US health system, including the cost of medical care, health insurance, Medicare and Medicaid, physician and nursing shortages, medical school admittance, malpractice reform, prescription drug prices, and more. -- From publisher's description

The foreign medical graduate and public policy : a discussion of the issues and options by Paul J Feldstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The large inflow of Foreign Medical Graduates (FMGs) into the U.S. is cited and four issues discussed. They are: (1) the belief that the FMG is less qualified than the U.S. medical graduate and thus contributes to the decline in quality of medical care; (2) the loss of scarce manpower from less developed countries that have greater needs than the U.S. for medical care and for physicians; (3) the lessening of opportunity for large numbers of U.S. citizens to become physicians; and (4) if trends continue, then together with the recently increased capacity of U.S. medical schools, there will be an oversupply of physicians in the U.S. which could lead to adverse competitive behavior, unnecessary care, and higher costs. Each of these concerns is examined together with several alternatives for alleviating each concern and the probable consequences of each alternative. It is concluded that the differential effects of a reduction in FMGs alone does not appear to be the solution to any of the issues, nor is it realistic. The differential effects of a reduction in FMGs on the population they serve may more than outweigh any benefits from such arbitrary reductions. (LBH)

Increasing dental output : a review of productivity by Paul J Feldstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based upon studies conducted in the U. S. and on data from other countries on the method used to provide dental care, increased dental productivity can be achieved through greater use of dental auxiliaries and by the use of expanded function auxiliaries. Dental practice laws should be made less restrictive to enable dentists to more fully utilize auxiliaries in their dental practice. Further, states should not promote restrictive laws regarding the qualifications for becoming a dental auxiliary. States should also reexamine the restrictions currently placed on the ability of a dentist to provide information regarding his practice. Dental practice laws should be modified to permit wide-scale demonstration projects on the feasibility of the school dental nurse program as performed in other countries. Although not directly related to increasing the productivity of a single dentist but instead related to the productivity of the oral health system, the use of flouridated water supplies should be encouraged. Allowing consumers to have greater access to the administration of flourides, and using lesser trained persons will achieve greater returns in terms of reducing unfilled needs than more expensive programs that attempt to increase the supply of highly trained dentists.

Increasing the supply of physicians : alternative sources for a state by Irene H Butter( Book )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to study flows into the pool of medical manpower in Michigan to develop guidelines for medical manpower policies. Assuming the goals were to maximize the number of physicians in Michigan, this paper describes an approach that would show the consequences of different allocations of state funds for achieving these objectives. It is granted that the ultimate goal, rather than maximizing the number of doctors, would be to achieve the highest possible health status for Michigan residents attainable with given resources. To properly evaluate the means to achieve this ultimate goal it is necessary to compare the impact of state funds devoted to increasing the pool of physicians to that of alternative state health and nonhealth expenditures that effect health status. Furthermore, enlarging the pool of physicians is only one of several ways of increasing the availability of health services that, in turn, represents only one approach to improving health status. These qualifications notwithstanding, this study is restricted to the analysis of alternative flows of medical manpower with associate cost implications for the state. Focusing on alternative flows of doctors into and out of Michigan, a framework will be provided for suggesting implications of different ways of state funding of the supply of physician manpower.

Regulating dental assistants : revisions of the Michigan Dental Practice Act by Paul J Feldstein( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document investigates the regulation of dental assistants in Michigan. Emphasis is placed on increased dental productivity from increased use of auxiliaries, utilization of dental auxiliaries, and educational and training requirements for certification and licensure. Results of the investigation indicate: (1) support should be given for the use of expanded function auxiliaries (EFAs) in dental practice in Michigan; (2) serious consideration be given to the exclusion of provisions reserving dental functions to specific categories of dental auxiliary; and (3) education and training requirements should be made as open and flexible as possible to assure that an adequate supply of low cost, but highly competent labor, will be available for practice.
