Reform follows failure: II. Pressure for change in the Lebanese health sector. (1/86)

This paper describes how, against a background of growing financial crisis, pressure for reform is building up in the Lebanese health care system. It describes the various agendas and influences that played a role. The Ministry of Health, backed by some international organizations, has started taking the lead in a reform that addresses both the way care is delivered and the way it is financed. The paper describes the interventions made to prepare reform. The experience in Lebanon shows that this preparation is a process of muddling through, experimentation and alliance building, rather than the marketing of an overall coherent blueprint.  (+info)

Assessing the use of nuclear medicine technology in sub-Saharan Africa: the essential equipment list. (2/86)

OBJECTIVE: The primary aim of the survey was to determine the core equipment required in a nuclear medicine department in public hospitals in Kenya and South Africa, and evaluate the capital investment requirements. METHODS: Physical site audits of equipment and direct interviews of medical and clinical engineering professionals were performed, as well as examination of tender and purchase documents, maintenance payment receipts, and other relevant documents. Originally, 10 public hospitals were selected: 6 referral and 4 teaching hospitals. The 6 referral hospitals were excluded from the survey due to lack of essential documents and records on equipment. The medical and technical staff from these hospitals were, however, interviewed on equipment usage and technical constraints. Data collection was done on-site and counter-checked against documents provided by the hospital administration. RESULTS: A list of essential equipment for a nuclear medicine department in sub-Saharan Africa was identified. Quotations for equipment were provided by all major equipment suppliers, local and international. CONCLUSION: A nuclear medicine department requires eight essential pieces of equipment to operate in sub-Saharan Africa. Two additional items are desirable but not essential.  (+info)

Reengineering the picture archiving and communication system (PACS) process for digital imaging networks PACS. (3/86)

Prior to June 1997, military picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) were planned, procured, and installed with key decisions on the system, equipment, and even funding sources made through a research and development office called Medical Diagnostic Imaging Systems (MDIS). Beginning in June 1997, the Joint Imaging Technology Project Office (JITPO) initiated a collaborative and consultative process for planning and implementing PACS into military treatment facilities through a new Department of Defense (DoD) contract vehicle called digital imaging networks (DIN)-PACS. The JITPO reengineered this process incorporating multiple organizations and politics. The reengineered PACS process administered through the JITPO transformed the decision process and accountability from a single office to a consultative method that increased end-user knowledge, responsibility, and ownership in PACS. The JITPO continues to provide information and services that assist multiple groups and users in rendering PACS planning and implementation decisions. Local site project managers are involved from the outset and this end-user collaboration has made the sometimes difficult transition to PACS an easier and more acceptable process for all involved. Corporately, this process saved DoD sites millions by having PACS plans developed within the government and proposed to vendors second, and then having vendors respond specifically to those plans. The integrity and efficiency of the process have reduced the opportunity for implementing nonstandard systems while sharing resources and reducing wasted government dollars. This presentation will describe the chronology of changes, encountered obstacles, and lessons learned within the reengineering of the PACS process for DIN-PACS.  (+info)

Technology assessment and requirements analysis: a process to facilitate decision making in picture archiving and communications system implementation. (4/86)

In a time of decreasing resources, managers need a tool to manage their resources effectively, support clinical requirements, and replace aging equipment in order to ensure adequate clinical care. To do this successfully, one must be able to perform technology assessment and capital equipment asset management. The lack of a commercial system that adequately performed technology needs assessment and addressed the unique needs of the military led to the development of an in-house Technology Assessment and Requirements Analysis (TARA) program. The TARA is a tool that provides an unbiased review of clinical operations and the resulting capital equipment requirements for military hospitals. The TARA report allows for the development of acquisition strategies for new equipment, enhances personnel management, and improves and streamlines clinical operations and processes.  (+info)

Characteristics of private medical practice in India: a provider perspective. (5/86)

Supply factors, depicted by input market conditions and government regulations, and demand factors, depicted by financing mechanisms and utilization patterns, are likely to determine the shape and character of private medical practice. The interaction of this complex set of factors will have considerable implications for the cost access and quality of services offered by this sector. Understanding these characteristics from a provider perspective is imperative to influence the behaviour of providers in this sector. This paper describes some of the important characteristics of private medical practice using a case study of an urban district in India, Ahmedabad, and analyzes their implications. Using survey data of 130 private doctors in the allopathic system, the paper describes broad characteristics of private medical practice using parameters such as growth of private practice, patient load and referrals within the sector, payment methods and determinants, patient concerns, and risks associated with private practice. The paper presents views on the prevalence of various undesirable practices in the private medical sector. It also discusses the awareness of providers about selected important regulations. The findings suggest that growing capital intensity due to cost of location, medical equipment and technology, and financial sources of capital investments are some unfavourable environmental factors experienced by private providers. The findings also indicate a high prevalence of various undesirable practices and low awareness of the objectives of important legislation among practicing doctors. Lack of awareness of important and relevant legislation raises serious questions about the implementation of these laws. The paper identifies the strong need for instituting and implementing an effective continuing medical education programme for practicing doctors, and linking it with their registration and continuation of their license to practice. The paper also suggests that cost of health care, access and quality problems will worsen with the growth of the private sector. The public policy response to check some of the undesirable consequences of this growth is critical and should focus on strengthening the existing institutional mechanisms to protect patients, developing and implementing an appropriate regulatory framework and strengthening the public health care delivery system. The study also discusses various other policy implications arising.  (+info)

Capital finance and ownership conversions in health care. (6/86)

This paper analyzes the for-profit transformation of health care, with emphasis on Internet start-ups, physician practice management firms, insurance plans, and hospitals at various stages in the industry life cycle. Venture capital, conglomerate diversification, publicly traded equity, convertible bonds, retained earnings, and taxable corporate debt come with forms of financial accountability that are distinct from those inherent in the capital sources available to nonprofit organizations. The pattern of for-profit conversions varies across health sectors, parallel with the relative advantages and disadvantages of for-profit and nonprofit capital sources in those sectors.  (+info)

Research capacity in UK primary care. (7/86)

BACKGROUND: Moves towards a 'primary care-led' National Health Service (NHS) and towards evidence-based care have focused attention upon the need for evaluative research relating to the structure, delivery, and outcome of primary health care in the United Kingdom (UK). This paper describes work carried out to inform the Department of Health Committee on Research and Development (R&D) in Primary Care (Mant Committee). AIM: To describe the extent and nature of current research capacity in primary care in the UK and to identify future needs and priorities. METHOD: Funding data were requested from NHS National Programmes, NHS Executive Regional Offices, the Department of Health (DoH), Scottish Office, Medical Research Council, and some charities. A postal survey was sent to relevant academic departments, and appropriate academic journals were reviewed from 1992 to 1996. In addition, interviews were conducted with academic and professional leaders in primary care. RESULTS: Overall, total annual primary care R&D spend by the NHS and the DoH was found to be 7% of the total spend, although annual primary care R&D spend differs according to funding source. Journals relating to primary care do not, with some notable exceptions (e.g. British Journal of General Practice, Family Practice), have high academic status, and research into primary care by academic departments is, with perhaps the exception of general practice, on a small scale. The research base of most primary care professions is minimal, and significant barriers were identified that will need addressing if research capacity is to be expanded. CONCLUSION: There are strong arguments for the development of primary care research in a 'primary care-led' NHS in the UK. However, dashes for growth or attempts to expand capacity from the present infrastructure must be avoided in favour of endeavours to foster a sustainable, long-term research infrastructure capable of responding meaningfully to identified needs.  (+info)

Understanding financing options for PACS implementation. Picture archiving and communication systems. (8/86)

The acquisition of expensive equipment such as picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) becomes increasingly difficult as capital budgets become tighter. Traditional ownership financing options in the form of direct purchase or financing (loan) have several limitations including technology obsolescence, higher fixed pricing, limited options for equipment disposal, and the need to tie up valuable capital. Alternative financing options, in the form of conventional lease and risk sharing arrangements, offer several theoretical advantages including technology obsolescence protection in the form of built-in upgrades, preservation of borrowing power, multiple end-of-term options, and payment flexibility (which can be directly tied to realized productivity and operational efficiency gains). These options are discussed, with emphasis on the acquisition of PACS.  (+info)

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues are becoming more and more significant for comprehensive evaluation of companies responsible investing activities. Over the years, the growth in corporate responsibility to the society and policies towards environmental consciousness has necessitated the need for comprehensive ESG integration into investment decision-making process and the impact of such activities on company‟s financial performance. Although, studies suggest that there is an increasing trend in ESG considerations among large-cap companies and public investors, little have been written about the link with private investors. Venture capital and private equity investors have an important role in shaping current innovative companies to become future leaders in the market and therefore posses the ability to influence entrepreneurs towards sustainability by incorporating ESG issues in their investment selection processes.. This study sought to find out if venture capital and private ...
We study whether venture capital firms with higher status and reputation are more risk tolerant due to their position in the field as opposed to lower status venture firms which might be more risk averse, due to less proven capabilities. We explore this possibility by considering whether or not role incongruity and gender stereotyping by venture capital firms lead to perceptions of women entrepreneurs as more risky investments. Results show that VC firm status produces a difference in risk tolerance and risk aversion in terms of investments in companies with women entrepreneurs, with higher status firms more likely to invest in women entrepreneurs. In addition, we find that companies with women CEOs are likely to be older and bigger and receive lower valuations than companies with men CEOs.
This paper examines how organizational structure affects behavior and outcomes, studying the performance of different types of venture capital organizations. We find a strong positive relationship between the degree of specialization by individual venture capitalists at a firm and its success. When the individual investment professionals are highly specialized themselves, the marginal effect of increasing overall firm specialization is much weaker. The poorer performance by generalists appears to be due to both an inefficient allocation of funding across industries and poor selection of investments within industries. Venture capital organizations with more experience tend to outperform those with less experience.

When EDF Ventures launched in Ann Arbor in 1987 to invest in university-based technologies, the University of Michigan had one person working part time on technology transfer.. And at the time, the only other local venture capitalist in Southeast Michigan was Ian Bund.. "We were considered an oddity," said EDF co-founder Mary Campbell. " Youre going to fund a professor? Why would you do that? ". Today, the tech transfer office at UM employs 28 and has a variety of entrepreneurial support services, including incubator space at the schools north campus for some of its licensed startups.. Growth of UMs tech transfer is mirrored by growth of Michigans venture capital industry. Funds that Campbell and Bund were associated with, less than $10 million, are quaint by todays standards.. Being an early adopter has been good to EDF. It has made a lot of money for its limited partners over the years through the sale or public offerings of such university-licensed portfolio companies as IntraLase, ...

Next year could be a fundraising drought for promising medical device start-ups in Minnesota.. Venture capitalists are feeling less confident about making investments in 2012, with 58 percent of them predicting fewer investments in biopharmaceutical and medical device businesses, according to a national survey from the National Venture Capital Association.. "Despite the fact that venture capitalists and entrepreneurs are well-positioned to thrive, externalities are keeping optimism at bay," said Mark Heesen, the associations president. Issues impacting the industry include economic instability in the United States and abroad, along with public policy issues, he added.. In Minnesota, the problem has been exacerbated, because the majority of venture capital investments in the state go toward medical device companies. Last year, venture capital investments hit its lowest level in 15 years of record keeping. The association has been active in trying to change how the nations Food and Drug ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! The joint determination of capital structure and investment risk is examined. Optimal capital structure reflects both the tax advantages of debt less default costs (Modigliani and Miller (1958, 1963)), and the agency costs resulting from asset substitution (Jensen and Meckling (1976)). Agency costs restrict leverage and debt maturity and increase yield spreads, but their importance is small for the range of environments considered. Risk management is also examined. Hedging permits greater leverage. Even when a firm cannot precommit to hedging, it will still do so. Surprisingly, hedging benefits often are greater when agency costs are low.

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper explores how to incorporate banks capital structure and risk-taking into models of production. In doing so, the paper bridges the gulf between (1) the banking literature that studies moral hazard effects of bank regulation without considering the underlying microeconomics of production and (2) the literature that uses dual profit and cost functions to study the microeconomics of bank production without explicitly considering how banks production decisions influence their riskiness. ; Various production models that differ in how they account for capital structure and in the objectives they impute to bank managers--cost minimization versus value maximization--are estimated using U.S. data on highest-level bank holding companies. Modeling the banks objective as value maximization conveniently incorporates both market-priced risk and expected cash flow into managers ranking and choice of production plans. ; Estimated scale economies are found to depend

It is still a comparatively young field and several of the fundamental questions raised by scholars working within it remain to be answered. The survey in this article aims to provide an overview of the current scholarly answers to several questions. In doing so it attempts as far as possible to cut through the jargon and hyperbole endemic to the subject and to provide convenient access to the main issues.
Paris, France, July 10th. 2018. Sofinnova Partners, a leading venture capital firm specialized in Life Sciences, today announced that Otsuka Holdings is acquiring its portfolio company ReCor Medical, a medical device company specialized in the treatment of hypertension. The terms of the acquisition are being withheld due to non-disclosure obligations.. ReCor Medical was created in 2009 by Sofinnova Partners, Mano Iyer - who was then entrepreneur-in-residence at Sofinnova Partners and now Chief Operating Officer of ReCor - and Professor Jacques Seguin, MD, who became a large private investor in ReCor. Prof. Seguin was previously founder and CEO of CoreValve, a past Sofinnova portfolio company and a leader in the transcatheter valve replacement space, which was sold to Medtronic. Sofinnova Partners was the sole venture capital investor in ReCor Medical and remained its largest shareholder until the sale to Otsuka..

Heres Why Chasing Venture Capital is a Waste of Time. If you ask anyone whos been there, raising capital is a difficult and altogether time-consuming process. For some, it can even wind-up wholly unfruitful. For the successful, it can still mean hours of effort and money spent in travel, pitching and hob-knobbing. Those whove done it, almost all wish they could have their time back. Fundraising can be a period of dark pessimism where the would-be, but persistent entrepreneur truly has a chance to test and see if s/he has what it takes to last the day. In chasing venture capital in 2014, there are a few ways in which I believe venture capital may have outlived its usefulness as a sexy asset-class.. Continue reading →. ...

According to a recent survey published by the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA), it is. The survey found that venture capital firms have been investing less in life sciences over the past three years. According to the NVCA press release "The survey of more than 150 venture capital firms identified Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulatory challenges as the most significant factor driving away investment from startup companies that are bringing critical therapies to market." Respondents to the study felt that regulatory challenges were primarily related to an imbalance in risk/benefit assessment and unpredictability at FDA. As a result investment is being moved from companies in the United States to companies in Europe and Asia. "While many factors are at work in driving away investment from U.S. medical innovation, it is the FDA approval process and the cost, time, and unpredictability that it adds to the development of innovative products that weighs most heavily on investors," ...
Nassau Capital folded back into Princo. Princetons $8.4-billion endowment earned a striking 35.5 percent return on investment for the fiscal year ended June 30, nearly five times as much as the Standard & Poors 500 Index.. Many major university endowments posted enviable results. Among the 18 largest reporting their numbers to the Chronicle of Higher Education, Princeton ranked ninth. Duke led with a 58.8 percent return; Harvard earned 32.2 percent, Yale 41 percent, and Dartmouth 46 percent.. The Chronicle attributed the results to the exceptional performance of venture capital, which benefited from a hot market in initial public offerings. Venture capital certainly stoked Princetons returns. These investments grew more than 200 percent last year and have averaged 82.5 percent annually over five years.. Given this performance, it may seem surprising that Princeton is now changing how it manages venture capital and other private equity investments like leveraged buyouts. Since 1995, these ...
Zygote Ventures is a privately held seed/angel venture capital fund. Zygote typically invests first, or very early, in innovative enterprises, most often technology, biotech, and agriculture. We are most interested in companies that can "change the game" - improving the world in a meaningful way.. As a privately held "angel" investor, Zygote Ventures falls somewhere between an entrepreneur and a traditional venture capital fund. Most VCs are limited partnerships, investing "other peoples money" and earning much of their profit as fees and carry. In contrast, Zygote invests only its principals money, and therefore earns no fees, profiting only from an increase in the value of the enterprise. This means that our interests are very closely aligned with the entrepreneurs. Without limited partners, Zygote can be less risk-averse than most VCs. Because there is no pressure to do a certain number of deals, or to invest a fixed-size fund, Zygote can choose to partner with those opportunities where ...

Internet startups can become viral sensations overnight and attract huge sums of venture capital.. Life science startups, on the other hand, take years just to launch trials, and theres always a shortage of willing investors.. Thats long been the mainstream views of funding patterns for the venture capital industrys two largest investment areas. With new high-flying "unicorn" Internet companies soaring to billion-dollar-plus valuations every month, it may seem particularly true today.. However, recent funding announcements offer proof that the unicorn club isnt limited to tech startups. Recently, Juno Therapeutics, a developer of therapeutics that re-engineer the bodys immune response to fight cancer, closed a $134 million Series B round, bringing total funding to more than $300 million. Thats an enormous sum for any venture-backed company, let alone a biotech founded just last December.. Much of the investor interest stems from Junos unique appeal.

Chancellor Gordon Brown said: In competitor countries, growing companies do well because large companies invest in them.. Under the new scheme the companies issuing the qualifying shares must be unquoted and have gross assets of not more than £15 million immediately before the investment and £16 million after it. To qualify the company which issues the shares, or a subsidiary, must carry on a qualifying trade.. Most trades will qualify other than some lower risk activities and trades backed by property which are excluded from the existing venture capital schemes, the Enterprise Investment Scheme and Venture Capital Trusts.. The scheme is intended to encourage corporate venturers to take minority holdings in independent companies. So investors must not control the companies they invest in, nor hold more than 30 per cent of their ordinary share capital (including any shares not attracting relief). At least 30 per cent of the ordinary shares of the issuing company must be held by individuals ...

Since as far back as the early 1990s, government, small firms and advisers have invested high expectations in business angels. They can provide the filling to fund growth in the so-called equity gap, where the bank says no to further cash, but where the business is too small to be of interest to venture capitalists.. Informal investments. By definition, informal venture capital is just that - a direct investment in a business by a wealthy individual. Finding an angel, however, is easier said than done. Most business angels value their privacy.. No-one wants every Tom, Dick and Harry who has a half-baked business proposition knocking at their door.. Research suggests some 60% of business angels are found through family and friends. Thus, although there has been a steady growth in angel investment through registered networking groups, in reality we have very little idea how many angels there are.. The British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) believes that there are about 5,600 business angels ...

Finding qualified distributors in Japan is oftentimes "tricky" and complicated. Foreign medical device companies should scrutinize the Japanese distributor thoroughly before signing an agreement. Similarly, Japanese distributors will evaluate the foreign medical device company before signing an agreement because the Japanese see business relationships as long term investments. The foreign medical device company should also assess whether the Japanese distributor wants to form a long-term relationship or is the distributor looking to copy the manufacturers products? Signing up the wrong distributor who does not perform can make changing distributors in the future an expensive and difficult process.. Many Japanese importer and distributors claim to have nationwide coverage, with sales offices in each of the major cities. Effective nationwide coverage, however, is limited to a few distributors. Oftentimes, hospitals and local distributors will have long term relationships, making it difficult to ...

This paper deals with the relation between excessive risk taking and capital structure in banks. Examining a quarterly dataset of U.S. banks between 1993 and 2010, we find that equity is valued higher when more risky portfolios are chosen when leverage is high, and that more risk taking has a negative impact on valuation of the debt of highly leveraged banks. We find no evidence that deposit insurance is encouraging risk taking behaviour. We do find that banks with a more troubled loan portfolio take on more risk. Banks whose share price has slumped tend to gamble for resurrection by increasing the riskiness of their asset portfolios. The results suggest that incentives embedded in the capital structure of banks contribute to systemic fragility, and so support the Basel III proposals towards less leverage and higher loss absorption capacity of capital ...

Marc Sparks is a man who has surmounted many obstacles to become a serial entrepreneur and a prominent venture capitalist. He is an embodiment of what a resilient spirit coupled with long term strategic business plans can achieve in the investment industry.

His story in venture capital investment is unique in the sense that he has helped to build many startups into leading organizations.. The huge revenue running into millions, by the conservative estimates of those who are privy to his finances, is solely due to the shrewd business acumen that he displays in all the transactions he engages in. Mr. Sparks rose to his present position through dedication and diligence, but not because he had a foundation in any industrial training or the study of financial investment.

KR: Weve had these economic cycles every seven to 10 years over the last 50, and its usually excesses that create the seeds for the next downturn. This time, weve had extremely easy money from the central banks around the world, and thats created bubbles. Now, the central banks are pulling back-especially ours. Easy capital has produced situations that arent sustainable in a tight or even normal monetary environment. Thats what happened last time with the housing boom and bust. Essentially the same thing is happening in this cycle, but its in leveraged loans, tech, venture capital investments, and private equity. Were going to see a correction in 2020 or 2021-less severe than we had last cycle, more like in 2000-2003.. ...
