A guiding principle of the Council on Health Care Technology is a special focus on medical technology assessment measures that coincide with patient well-being, quality of health care, and quality of life. Of particular concern is care of the elderly, which constitutes a special and vulnerable patient population. This comprehensive book discusses the appropriate use of technology to minimize risks posed to the elderly patient in the delivery of health care services. It covers home and community care as well as acute hospital care, and system resources and constraints

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

6 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 155 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
Quality assurance in medicine : experience in the public sector by Kathleen N Lohr( Book )

5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 122 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
Medicare and medicaid : past, present, and future by Kathleen N Lohr( Book )

6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Use of medical care in the Rand Health Insurance Experiment : diagnosis- and service-specific analysis in a randomized controlled trial by Rand Corporation( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the RAND Health Insurance Experiment (HIE), cost-sharing reduced the probability of using medical care across a wide spectrum of individual conditions and reasons for seeking care, perhaps somewhat more for acute illnesses and preventive care than for chronic disease. It had equivalent effects in curtailing use of highly effective and only rarely effective medical care, suggesting that it did not have an especially selective impact. Finally, it influenced care-seeking behaviors for persons of low income more than for persons of greater means, and it especially deterred the use of medical care by poor children. In interpreting these findings on the use of ambulatory care in the context of previously reported health status results from the HIE, this report, which originally appeared in Medical Care, v. 24, no. 9, Sept. 1986, suggests that one way to explain why so few adverse effects of cost-sharing were detected may be certain offsetting effects of the additional services received by persons with free care: i.e., at the margin, the negative effects of unnecessary or inappropriate care tend to balance the beneficial effects of appropriate care. This supposition leads the authors to consider several research and policy implications in the areas of measuring patient outcomes, improving the nature and dissemination of information to patients, improving quality-of-care assessment and assurance techniques, and assessing several health care financing options for the disadvantaged
