Excess capacity: markets regulation, and values. (1/421)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the conceptual bases for the conflicting views of excess capacity in healthcare markets and their application in the context of today's turbulent environment. STUDY SETTING: The policy and research literature of the past three decades. STUDY DESIGN: The theoretical perspectives of alternative economic schools of thought are used to support different policy positions with regard to excess capacity. Changes in these policy positions over time are linked to changes in the economic and political environment of the period. The social values implied by this history are articulated. DATA COLLECTION: Standard library search procedures are used to identify relevant literature. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Alternative policy views of excess capacity in healthcare markets rely on differing theoretical foundations. Changes in the context in which policy decisions are made over time affect the dominant theoretical framework and, therefore, the dominant policy view of excess capacity. CONCLUSIONS: In the 1990s, multiple perspectives of optimal capacity still exist. However, our evolving history suggests a set of persistent values that should guide future policy in this area.  (+info)

Primary health care in Turkey: a passing fashion? (3/421)

The Alma-Ata Declaration has long been regarded as a watershed in the health policy arena. The global goal of the World Health Organization, 'Health for All by the Year 2000' through primary health care, has attracted many countries both in the developed and the developing world and commitments to this end have been made at every level. However, albeit this consensus on the paper, a common and explicit definition of the concept has not been reached yet. This paper aims at discussing various definitions of primary health care that emerged after the Declaration and also presenting a case study from Turkey, a country that advocates primary health care in her recent health policy reform attempts. After setting the conceptual framework for discussion the Turkish case is presented by using research carried out among Turkish policy-makers at different levels of the State apparatus. It has been concluded that application of primary health care principles as defined in the broad definition of the concept requires major changes or rather shake-ups in Turkey. These areas are outlined briefly at the end of the paper.  (+info)

Health sector reform in central and eastern Europe: the professional dimension. (4/421)

The success or failure of health sector reform in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe depends, to a large extent, on their health care staff. Commentators have focused on the structures to be put in place, such as mechanisms of financing or changes in ownership of facilities, but less attention has been paid to the role and status of the different groups working in health care services. This paper draws on a study of trends in staffing and working conditions throughout the region. It identifies several key issues including the traditionally lower status and pay of health sector workers compared to the West, the credibility crisis of trade unions, and the under-developed roles of professional associations. In order to implement health sector reforms and to address the deteriorating health status of the population, the health sector workforce has to be restructured and training programmes reoriented towards primary care. Finally, the paper identifies emerging issues such as the erosion of 'workplace welfare' and its adverse effects upon a predominantly female health care workforce.  (+info)

Reform follows failure: I. Unregulated private care in Lebanon. (5/421)

This first of two papers on the health sector in Lebanon describes how unregulated development of private care quickly led to a crisis situation. Following the civil war the health care sector in Lebanon is characterized by (i) ambulatory care provided by private practitioners working as individual entrepreneurs, and, to a small extent, by NGO health centres; and (ii) by a fast increase in hi-tech private hospitals. The latter is fuelled by unregulated purchase of hospital care by the Ministry of Health and public insurance schemes. Health expenditure and financing patterns are described. The position of the public sector in this context is analyzed. In Lebanon unregulated private care has resulted in major inefficiencies, distortion of the health care system, the creation of a culture that is oriented to secondary care and technology, and a non-sustainable cost explosion. Between 1991 and 1995 this led to a financing and organizational crisis that is the background for growing pressure for reform.  (+info)

Reform follows failure: II. Pressure for change in the Lebanese health sector. (6/421)

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)

Pharmaceutical regulation in context: the case of Lao People's Democratic Republic. (7/421)

An explosive development of private pharmacies in the Lao People's Democratic Republic (Lao P.D.R.) has led to 80% of pharmaceuticals being provided by the private sector. In order to achieve the goal of access to good quality health care for all citizens, the Lao government is making an effort to regulate the private pharmaceutical sector using the emerging legal system of laws, decrees, and regulations. The aim of this paper is to describe and analyze the system of drug regulation in Lao P.D.R. in relation to the public social goals. Relevant official documents at the central, provincial and district levels have been reviewed, interviews were held with 30 key informants and 15 pharmacies were surveyed. The public social goals have been expressed in terms of equity and quality of care. However, total drug expenditure may be as low as US$1 per person per year which is far below any minimum standard and does not make it possible to achieve reasonable access to drugs for all. The regulatory system has so far been focused on entry into the pharmaceutical retail market and dealing with basic issues of product quality and conditions of sale. An enforcement system including sanctions is being developed; other policy instruments such as information and economic means are hardly being used at all. The government presently faces a trade-off between quality of pharmaceutical services and geographical equity of access. The study shows that regulation is strongly influenced by the general socioeconomic context.  (+info)

A critical review of priority setting in the health sector: the methodology of the 1993 World Development Report. (8/421)

The 1993 World Development Report, Investing in Health, suggests policies to assist governments of developing countries in improving the health of their populations. A new methodology to improve government spending is introduced. Epidemiological and economic analyses from the basis for a global priority setting exercise, leading to a recommended essential public health and clinical services package for low- and middle-income countries.

But COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing requirements have inevitably proved to be a major obstacle to normal services throughout the pandemic..

What this report shows is that exorbitant prices in healthcare are largely a symptom of increasingly concentrated healthcare markets and that more rigorous antitrust enforcement is essential to solving Americas healthcare crisis. This new data demonstrates how a broad range of markets in the healthcare sector, from syringe manufacturing to dialysis centers, have become increasingly monopolized over time by a handful of major players. This growing monopoly power contributes significantly ...

Abstract: We study the effect of product market competition on the incentives to engage in earnings manipulation and we find that they crucially depend on the level of visibility of firm real activity in the marketplace. If investors can perfectly observe real firm output and sales, then CEOs are forced to act in the marketplace in a consistent manner with the earnings they are reporting. We show in a simple model how this is too expensive in more competitive markets and therefore competition should reduce rather than increase earnings manipulation. On the contrary, if investors and analysts cannot observe firm real output in the marketplace we show how manipulating earnings might be particu
If you own shares in a company, then you can have a say in what it does.. Commonwealth Bank is the largest company in Australia and one of the heaviest lenders to fossil fuels among Australian banks.

Market share is never the final determinant of market power. It is used as a screen for further investigation and/or to shift the burden of proof. So, for example, an HHI (Herfindahl Hirschman Index) greater than 1700 or 1800 is triggers anti-trust investigations by the US government in the case of mergers and acquisitions. In the case of determining significant market power in telecom regulation (LIRNEasia is quite skeptical about the value of this approach in developing countries), market shares of around 35-45 percent shift the burden on the operator to prove that it does not have market power (the ability to set and maintain prices in simple language).. But in Bangladesh 20 percent market share is the magic number. And its not a rebuttable presumption; nor a screen. You go over 20 percent, you start paying more for the critical input of spectrum. This is the gist of the Market Competition Factor, I have described elsewhere as anti-consumer. The MCF for Citycell is 0.3, while it is 1.48 ...

Utahs entrepreneurial spirit - the free market drive to innovate to fulfill peoples unmet needs - is particularly strong and visible in Utahs healthcare sector.
By G Ananthakrishnan. In the absence of a robust state-funded health infrastructure providing free care, citizens have no option but to seek out private facilities. As a result, we have a burgeoning private healthcare sector, unregulated and often exploitative A single episode of major illness is enough to eat away the life-savings of most individuals in India . In fact, there is data to suggest that such illnesses push several families below the poverty line. The World Bank reported in 2002 that irrespective of income class, one episode of hospitalisation is estimated to account for 58% of per capita annual expenditure, pushing 2.2% of the population below the poverty line. Even more disconcerting is the fact that 40% of those hospitalised had to borrow money or sell off assets. During 1986-96, the number of people who could not access healthcare because of financial reasons doubled over the baseline. This obviously suggests a greater role for the public sector in healthcare. Yet, several ...
By. Aditi Ramdorai and Cornelius Herstatt. Working Paper No. 74, TIM/TUHH. Frugal innovations, characterized by their focus on affordability and retaining key functionalities of products/services, are emerging in the healthcare sector from India- ranging from low-cost healthcare delivery by hospitals like Aravind Eye Care that provides cataract surgery to around 300,000 patients at a cost of 18 USD per patient to product innovations such as the Jaipur Foot, a low-cost prosthesis.

Disruptive innovations create growth potential for companies while opening up access to products and services that were previously beyond peoples reach. Low-income markets or Base-of-the-Pyramid [BOP] markets present new opportunities to Multi-National Corporations [MNCs] and scholars are calling MNCs to leverage BOP markets to create disruptive innovations..

The Health Care Choice Act would substantially improve the functioning of health care markets and, through greater breadth and intensity of competition, the delivery of health care services from medical professionals.. Broader and More Intense Competition. State health insurance markets are increasingly concentrated and less competitive, often dominated by a few large insurers. Market consolidation has been accelerated by mergers and acquisitions, as well as by rigid state government policies that have discouraged carrier participation. In the individual market, insurance companies participation varies, and many markets are dominated by fewer and fewer number of large carriers. In many cases, this consolidation has been facilitated by misguided state government policy. Likewise, in the small group market, the declines are dramatic. In Marylands highly regulated small group market, for example, between 1995 and 2004, the number of participating insurers dropped from 37 to 9; two of the largest ...

On 5 April 2017, Advocate General (AG) Wathelet of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) released his opinion in the case Commission / Germany (C-616/15). The AG concludes that the German domestic law restricting the cost sharing exemption (CSE) to professionals in the healthcare sector is narrower than the VAT Directive has intended.

Pharmacists in Uganda assist customers with recommending antimalarial medications (Photo credit: Maddy Marasciulo-Rice, Malaria Consortium). Presumptive treatment ― the overuse of antimalarials greatly increases the chances that malaria parasite resistance will develop and spread. In the future we might have one less weapon in our arsenal against these parasites. This overuse also means that the medicine is put over. How can rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) help treat malaria?. Fortunately, rapid diagnostic tests, or RDTs, allow malaria to be diagnosed quickly, accurately, and cheaply, using only a drop of blood and a few drops of a solution. The problem is―there is no official quality control within the private healthcare sector―the pharmacists who provide the RDT to the patient have no way to choose a good RDT from the many options on the market and the wrong choice could lead to inaccurate diagnosis. Furthermore, many of the RDT sales representatives havent been trained to properly ...
