The nation's physician workforce : options for balancing supply and requirements by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )

12 editions published between 1900 and 1996 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enormous changes are occurring in the organization and financing of the U.S. health care system--rapid changes that are being driven by market forces rather than by government initiatives. Although it is difficult to predict what they system will look like once it begins to stabilize, the changes will affect all components of the health care workforce, and the numbers and types of health care professionals that will be needed in the future--as well as the roles they will fill--will surely be much different than they were in the past. Despite numerous studies in the past 15 years showing that we might have more doctors than we need, the number of physicians in residency training continues to grow. At the same time, there is evidence that the demand for physician services will decrease as a result of growth of managed care. All of this is evidence that the demand for physician services will decrease as a result of growth of managed care. All of this is taking place at a time when, coincident with the result of failure of comprehensive health care reform, there is no coordinated and widely accepted physician workforce policy in the United States. The present study examines the following three questions: (1) Is there a physician policy in the United States? (2) If there a surplus, what is its likely impact on the cost, quality, and access to health care and on the efficient use of human resources? (3) What realistic steps can be taken to deal with a physician surplus?

Impact of Medicare prospective payment on the quality of medical care : a research agenda( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the prospective payment system (PPS) introduced in 1983, hospitals are to be paid for each Medicare admission on the basis of a price per case set in advance, thus giving hospitals and other providers incentives for delivering care that are radically different from those of cost-reimbursement financing. This report identifies major issues relating to quality of care, sketches conceptual and practical aspects of carrying out appropriate studies of these issues, and outlines a quality-of-care research agenda. It emphasizes changes in hospital care that are most likely to occur secondary to PPS, those likely to have the most direct impact on patients' outcomes, and changes that can be defined, detected, and measured with relative ease. Certain themes for future research efforts are stressed: (1) the overall research agenda must be strong enough to detect clinically meaningful impacts on patient outcomes and to be able to assign those impacts to PPS; (2) outcomes other than death must be examined; (3) interpreting the impacts of PPS requires understanding the clinical circumstances of Medicare patients; (4) developing better outcome measures is essential; (5) targeting impact studies on high-priority topics will be unavoidable; and (6) a full picture of the effects of PPS requires a long-term perspective, extending beyond FY 1987
Use of medical care in the Rand Health Insurance Experiment : diagnosis- and service-specific analysis in a randomized controlled trial( Book )

8 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph presents studies from the Rand Health Insurance Experiment (HIE) concerning the effect of cost-sharing on the use of outpatient medical care for specific diagnosis. The HIE was a large-scale randomized controlled trial of alternative forms of health care financing sponsored by the U.S. Departement of Health and Human Services. The study took place between Nov. 1974 and Janv. 1982 in six sites in the United States and enrolled more than 7'700 nonaged persons in one of several experimental health insurance plans. These analyzes highlight the effect of cost-sharing on the probability of using medical care for specific diagnoses or problems, and the content of medical practice ("disease profile") for specific conditions or reasons for seeking care. Appendixes : Definitions of Groups of diagnoses, procedures and test, and drugs. Rules for creating episodes of care from HIE claims data. Observed probabilities of an episode of care. Logistic regressions. Episode size for selected diagnoses by plan
Quality assurance in medicine : experience in the public sector by Kathleen N Lohr( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes and reflects upon current quality assurance efforts in the health care field. It defines the concepts of quality of care and quality assurance, and recounts the history of the quality assurance movement. It then describes three initiatives in quality assurance sponsored by the federal government: Experimental Medical Care Review Organizations, Professional Standards Review Organizations, and Utilization and Quality Control Peer Review Organizations. The authors conclude that quality assurance is unlikely to grow in prominence or funding, but that the legacy of the federal programs is very positive. Methods for providing quality assurance as well as for evaluating quality assurance organizations showed progress in an environment almost wholly concentrated on controlling the costs of medical care
