  • MEDICAL
  • Drawing on both information available within the pharmaceutical industry and the writings of commentators such as King (1966), Bryant (1969), Abel-Smith (1967) and Gish (1971), the report argued that medical resource allocation in most developing countries was too heavily biased towards urban, hospital based, curative medicine, OHE noted that in many poor countries two thirds to three quarters of public health spending goes on hospitals. (ohe.org)
  • The major challenges confronting the hospitals were identified as weak purchasing power due to low tariffs, non computerisation of claims processing, unpredictable payment pattern, poor gate-keeping systems, lack of logistics and other new and emerging challenges relating to moral hazards and the use of false identity cards under pretence for medical care. (springer.com)
  • At the same time, the allocation of medical resources in the system would be improved, actually leading to better access to health care services for Ontarians. (fcpp.org)
  • research
  • While there is a need for more research on the relations between costs in healthcare systems, and significant variations between countries, several studies have found that access to innovative treatments have reduced inpatient care costs because, among other things, better treatments reduce the need for long hospital stay. (ecipe.org)
  • The data extracted for the provincial portion of the database will allow administrative database research that will provide important information to key stakeholders and permit allocation of resources. (centerwatch.com)
  • Competition
  • To test this hypothesis we studied hospitals in California in 1982 and 1989, comparing resource allocations prior to and following selective contracting, a period during which the focus of competition changed from quality to price. (springer.com)
  • Unlike other health care markets, in which the change from quality to price based competition was gradual, driven by continuously increasing penetration of managed care, and often time confounded by other secular trends, the California legislation changed market conditions very rapidly for all hospitals in the state by permitting all health plans for the first time to contract with only a subset of hospitals.

  • Over the past few years serious efforts have been made in Britain and elsewhere to achieve a more rational distribution of health care resources. (ohe.org)
  • It has often been assumed that an optimum supply of health care facilities could be achieved by the measurement of objective health care needs, and that, then, these resources could be fairly allocated to those requiring them. (ohe.org)
  • These trends have resulted in fewer and smaller hospitals, more and larger intensive-care units, and greater severity of illness in the hospitalized population. (infectioncontroltoday.com)
