The role of health care transformation for the Chinese dream : powering economic growth, promoting a harmonious society by Soeren Mattke( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After having successfully expanded health insurance coverage, China now faces the challenge of building an effective and efficient delivery system to serve its large and aging population. The country finds itself at a crossroads--it can emulate the models of Western countries with their well-known limitations, or embark on an ambitious endeavor to create an innovative and sustainable model. RAND researchers recommend that China choose the second option and design and implement a health care system based on population health management principles and sophisticated health information technology. Taking this path could yield a triple dividend for China: Health care will contribute to the growth of service sector employment, stimulate domestic demand by unlocking savings, and enable China to export its health system development capabilities to other countries, mirroring its success in building other critical infrastructure. These forces can help turn the Chinese Dream into a reality
Workplace wellness programs study : final report by Soeren Mattke( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report investigates the characteristics of workplace wellness programs, their prevalence, their impact on employee health and medical cost, facilitators of their success, and the role of incentives in such programs. The authors employ four data collection and analysis streams: a review of the scientific and trade literature, a national survey of employers, a longitudinal analysis of medical claims and wellness program data from a sample of employers, and five case studies of existing wellness programs in a diverse set of employers to gauge the effectiveness of wellness programs and employees⁰́₉ and employers⁰́₉ experiences
Quantitative evaluation of the impact of the Healthy Communities Initiative in Cincinnati by Soeren Mattke( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Metropolitan Cincinnati residents have traditionally had among the highest health care costs in the United States, yet little evidence exists that residents are getting their money{u2019}s worth, especially in terms of preventive and primary care. Recently, large employers, health plans, and health care providers in the Cincinnati area joined with community organizations in an effort to improve health care and population health, as well as reduce health care costs by focusing on five priority areas: coordinated primary care, health information exchange, quality improvement, public reporting and consumer engagement, and payment innovations. Spearheaded by General Electric (GE) Cincinnati, the resulting Healthy Communities Initiative in Cincinnati was implemented in 2009. In 2012, GE asked RAND Health Advisory Services to assess progress over the first three years of the initiative. Overall, the findings were largely inconclusive because of a concomitant marketwide shift to high-deductible health policies (which are known to have profound effects on care-seeking behavior) and the early stage of the intervention. However, there were some encouraging signs that better care coordination bears fruit, such as less illness-related work loss and fewer avoidable hospital admissions and readmissions. These early impacts suggest that the initiative may succeed in improving care, lowering cost, and improving health status if given sufficient time
Five steps to a successful workplace wellness program : a RAND toolkit by Kristin R Van Busum( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Well-designed, well-executed workplace wellness programs can reduce health risks (such as smoking and physical inactivity), lower health care costs, and improve productivity. RAND researchers determined that these programs are becoming a standard component of benefits packages but that not all of them are created equal: Some generate cost savings whereas others do not, and there are substantial differences in how programs are being designed and implemented. This toolkit synthesizes the lessons learned and best practices from multiple projects and many years of research into a five-step guide for the planning, implementation, and evaluation of a successful workplace wellness program."--Summary from back cover
Health Care Quality Indicators Project Initial Indicators Report by Edward Kelly( )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, written in 3 parts, covers 17 important and readily available quality indicators of effectiveness of health care in 23 countries around the world. These indicators should be used as the basis for investigation to understand why health care differences exist between countries and what can be done to reduce those differences and improve health care in all countries. Part 1 of this report summarises the purpose and history of the project, the methods employed and the results attained. Part 2 of this report summarises findings from detailed analysis carried out by the OECD in the Spring and Summer 2005 on a set of 5 questions posed by country experts during the December 2004 HCQI Expert Group meeting in Paris. Part 3 of this report reviews the detailed information on scientific soundness, importance, availability of data and the international comparability of the data for indicators recommended for inclusion in an initial OECD Health Care Quality Indicators set

Avoiding the tragedy of the commons in health care : policy options for covering high-cost cures by Soeren Mattke( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this Perspective, Mattke and his colleagues discuss the risk that strategic behavior by health insurers could unravel the market for curative therapies for chronic diseases. Because the cost of these cures is front-loaded but the benefits accrue over time, insurers might attempt to delay treatment or avoid patients who require it, in the hope that they might change insurers. The authors discuss policy options to remedy this potential free-rider problem through alignment of incentives at the patient level, coordination among payers, and government intervention. They present a framework to analyze policy options and real-world case studies. While implementing those policy options is far from easy, stakeholders need to collaborate in order to establish equitable mechanisms that fairly distribute the cost and benefits of high-cost cures"--Publisher's description

Medicines as a service : a new commercial model for big pharma in the postblockbuster world by Soeren Mattke( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The pharmaceutical industry can reconfigure its considerable resources to develop innovative and meaningful business models that are based on services related to prescription drugs for chronic conditions. We argue that such innovation beyond the pill is consistent with the core capabilities of large pharmaceutical companies and has the potential to achieve profit levels similar to those of its traditional models. Our argument is based on the fact that, although effective medicines for most chronic conditions exist, access and adherence to medicines are far from what would be needed to achieve full treatment efficacy. Therefore, value can be created by getting and keeping more patients on their drugs, and innovative business models would allow pharmaceutical companies to capture that value
Factors affecting physician professional satisfaction and their implications for patient care, health systems, and health policy by Mark W Friedberg( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the American Medical Association's core strategic objectives is to advance health care delivery and payment models that enable high-quality, affordable care and restore and preserve physician satisfaction. Such changes could yield a more sustainable and effective health care system with highly motivated physicians. To that end, the AMA asked RAND Health to characterize the factors that lead to physician satisfaction. RAND sought to identify high-priority determinants of professional satisfaction that can be targeted within a variety of practice types, especially as smaller and independent practices are purchased by or become affiliated with hospitals and larger delivery systems. Researchers gathered data from 30 physician practices in six states, using a combination of surveys and semistructured interviews. This report presents the results of the subsequent analysis, addressing such areas as physicians' perceptions of the quality of care, use of electronic health records, autonomy, practice leadership, and work quantity and pace. Among other things, the researchers found that physicians who perceived themselves or their practices as providing high-quality care reported better professional satisfaction. Physicians, especially those in primary care, were frustrated when demands for greater quantity of care limited the time they could spend with each patient, detracting from the quality of care in some cases. Electronic health records were a source of both promise and frustration, with major concerns about interoperability between systems and with the amount of physician time involved in data entry

Workplace wellness programs : services offered, participation, and incentives by Soeren Mattke( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report leverages existing data on wellness programs to explore patterns of wellness program availability, employers' use of incentives, and program participation and utilization among employees. Researchers used two sets of data for this project: The first included data from the 2012 RAND Employer Survey, which used a nationally representative sample of U.S. employers that had detailed information on wellness program offerings, program uptake, incentive use, and employer characteristics. These data were used to answer questions on program availability, configuration, uptake, and incentive use. The second dataset included health care claims and wellness program information for a large employer. These data were analyzed to predict program participation and changes in utilization and health. The findings underscore the increasing prevalence of worksite wellness programs. About four-fifths of all U.S. employers with more than 1,000 employees are estimated to offer such programs. For those larger employers, program offerings cover a range of screening activities, interventions to encourage healthy lifestyles, and support for employees with manifest chronic conditions. Smaller employers, especially those with fewer than 100 employees, appear more reserved in their implementation of wellness programs. The use of financial incentives appears to increase employee participation in wellness programs, but only modestly. Employee participation in lifestyle management aspects of workplace wellness programs does not reduce healthcare utilization or cost regardless of whether we focus on higher-risk employees or those who are more engaged in the program
