The use of targets to improve the performance of health care providers: a discussion of government policy. (1/4865)The aim of this discussion paper is to examine the advantages and drawbacks of employing targets, or performance indicators, to improve the performance of those delivering health care services. The paper is based on an examination of two target-setting policies initiated by Government: the 1992 Health of the Nation strategy and the 1990 General Practitioners' Contract. It is argued that the introduction of both the General Practitioners' Contract and the Health of the Nation have indeed been accompanied by improvements in performance, however, there are a number of problems with targets. They tend to focus on those things that are most easily measured, and they may foster complacency on the part of providers who have already achieved upper target limits, and defensiveness on the part of those performing badly. National targets may skew local priorities; they may also be unrealistic and unattainable for particular, less privileged population groups. They may serve to widen inequalities in health, and can exacerbate the 'inverse care law' by encouraging providers to direct their efforts at the more advantaged sections of society, where such efforts are more likely to pay off in terms of overall improvements in the target level achieved. Finally, the achievement of some targets will not necessarily result in better health outcomes. The paper concludes that a target-setting approach to improving the quality of care must be based on the use of appropriate indicators, and must take account of differences between more and less advantaged sections of society.

Cancer mortality by educational level in the city of Barcelona. (2/4865)The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between educational level and mortality from cancer in the city of Barcelona. The data were derived from a record linkage between the Barcelona Mortality Registry and the Municipal Census. The relative risks (RR) of death and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) according to level of education were derived from Poisson regression models. For all malignancies, men in the lowest educational level had a RR of death of 1.21 (95% CI 1.13-1.29) compared with men with a university degree, whereas for women a significant decreasing in risk was observed (RR 0.81; 95% CI 0.74-0.90). Among men, significant negative trends of increasing risk according to level of education were present for cancer of the mouth and pharynx (RR 1.70 for lowest vs. highest level of education), oesophagus (RR 2.14), stomach (RR 1.99), larynx (RR 2.56) and lung (RR 1.35). Among women, cervical cancer was negatively related to education (RR 2.62), whereas a positive trend was present for cancers of the colon (RR 0.76), pancreas (RR 0.59), lung (RR 0.55) and breast (RR 0.65). The present study confirms for the first time, at an individual level, the existence of socioeconomic differences in mortality for several cancer sites in Barcelona, Spain. There is a need to implement health programmes and public health policies to reduce these inequities. (+info)
Making Medicaid managed care research relevant. (3/4865)OBJECTIVE: To help researchers better understand Medicaid managed care and the kinds of research studies that will be both feasible and of value to policymakers and program staff. The article builds on our experience researching Medicaid managed care to provide insight for researchers who want to be policy relevant. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We draw four lessons from our work on Medicaid managed care in seven states. First, these are complex programs that differ substantially across states. Second, each program faces common challenges and issues. The need to address common design elements involving program eligibility, managed care and provider contracting, beneficiary enrollment, education, marketing, and administration and oversight provides a vehicle that researchers can use to help understand states and to provide them with relevant insight. Third, well-designed case studies can provide invaluable descriptive insights. Such case studies suggest that providing effective descriptions of state programs and experience, monitoring information on program performance and tradeoffs, and insight on implementation and design are all valuable products of such studies that have considerable potential to be converted into policy-actionable advice. And fourth, some questions demand impact studies but the structure of Medicaid managed care poses major barriers to such studies. CONCLUSIONS: Many challenges confront researchers seeking to develop policy-relevant research on managed care. Researchers need to confront these challenges in turn by developing second-best approaches that will provide timely insight into important questions in a relatively defensible and rigorous way in the face of many constraints. If researchers do not, others will, and researchers may find their contributions limited in important areas for policy debate. (+info)
Excess capacity: markets regulation, and values. (4/4865)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.

Latino children's health and the family-community health promotion model. (7/4865)A majority of Latino children in the US live in poverty. However, unlike other poor children, Latino children do not seem to have a consistent association between poverty and poor health. Instead, many poor Latino children have unexpectedly good health outcomes. This has been labeled an epidemiologic paradox. This paper proposes a new model of health, the family-community health promotion model, to account for this paradox. The family-community health promotion model emphasizes the family-community milieu of the child, in contrast to traditional models of health. In addition, the family-community model expands the outcome measures from physical health to functional health status, and underscores the contribution of cultural factors to functional health outcomes. In this paper, we applied the family-community health promotion model to four health outcomes: low birthweight, infant mortality, chronic and acute illness, and perceived health status. The implications of this model for research and policy are discussed. (+info)
Disease eradication and health systems development. (8/4865)This article provides a framework for the design of future eradication programmes so that the greatest benefit accrues to health systems development from the implementation of such programmes. The framework focuses on weak and fragile health systems and assumes that eradication leads to the cessation of the intervention required to eradicate the disease. Five major components of health systems are identified and key elements which are of particular relevance to eradication initiatives are defined. The dearth of documentation which can provide "lessons learned" in this area is illustrated with a brief review of the literature. Opportunities and threats, which can be addressed during the design of eradication programmes, are described and a number of recommendations are outlined. It is emphasized that this framework pertains to eradication programmes but may be useful in attempts to coordinate vertical and horizontal disease control activities for maximum mutual benefits.

Is there a role of epidemiology in health policy formulation? - AHRI - American Health Research Institute
The core functions of public health stresses the importance of assessment in meeting the substance of public health, which are disease control and health promotions. The assessment component of the public health core function is achieved through the joint effort of epidemiology and biostatistics. Health policy ensures that public health services are provided for the populations in need of such services. The understanding of the populations in need depends on the magnitude of the health problems and the existing resources to address such problems. Therefore findings from epidemiologic studies should serve as the building blocks for health policy formulation and implementation. In the light of this, unless policy formulation builds on health research findings that utilized sound epidemiologic principles and methods in their designs and reality in their statistical modeling of the data, health issues will remain unaddressed appropriately in our nation. ...
An Obama-Gingrich-Ryan Ticket on Health Policy Reform - The Health Care Blog
Newt Gingrich has to be one of the most interesting figures in recent political history. His soul lives at the intersection of public policy, politics and history. Because he has been on so many sides of history and policy, political insiders greet his entry into the presidential primary campaign as "Harold Stassen-ish." I am among them, having entered the Senate the same time Newt entered the House 30-plus years ago. I dont know Republican House Budget Committee chair Paul Ryan, but I admire his leadership talent and regret his decision not to run for the Senate from Wisconsin. It would raise the level of health policy discourse substantially in that "august body.". Barack Obama is undoubtedly making presidential history. Given the many policy challenges he has had to take on since January 20, 2009, plus the one he chose to take on - health policy reform, aka PPACA, theres no question he is in a unique place in history today. But, it is the Republicans - the "Party of No" on Obamacare - that ...

Government policy and the probability of coordination failures
Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper introduces an approach to the study of optimal government policy in economies characterized by a coordination problem and multiple equilibria. Such models are often criticized as not being useful for policy analysis because they fail to assign a unique prediction to each possible policy choice. We employ a selection mechanism that assigns, ex ante, a probability to each equilibrium indicating how likely it is to obtain. We show how such a mechanism can be derived as the natural result of an adaptive learning process. This approach leads to a well-defined optimal policy problem, and has important implications for the conduct of government policy. We illustrate these implications using a simple model of technology adoption under network externalities.(This abstract was borrowed from another version of this item.)

Objectives The aim of the present study was to document Australian policies on the physical health of people with mental illness and evaluate the capacity of policy to support health needs. Methods A search of state and federal policies on mental and physical illness was conducted, as well as detailed analysis of policy content and the relationships between policies, by applying the World Health Organization Mental Health Action Plan 2013-2020 as an evaluative framework. Results National policy attention to the physical health of people with mental illness has grown, but there is little interconnection at the national and state levels. State policies across the country are inconsistent, and there is little evidence of consistent policy implementation. Conclusions A coherent national health policy framework on addressing co-occurring physical and mental illnesses that includes healthcare system reforms and ensuring the interconnectedness of other relevant services should be prioritised. ...

Andrew,. I am happy that you appreciate diagreements, because I really do disagree. You have the strong policy recommendations in your title, so you should be able to back them up. But all you really have is a rather vague "seems that some policy implications are involved." If that is all you can actually argue, you should retract the earlier allegations. The irony is that you make strong allegations without much basis in a piece in which you criticize just that. If what you provide is - by your own admission - "not necessarily "strong" recommendations" (though this has a slight aftertaste of snark, if I am not mistaken), you should not anchor your piece on them being exactly that.. But I even doubt the "recommendations" part. There are three instances in which I see policy relevance (as claimed by Tol), one in the negative: a) whatever initial benefits (of warming) there are (not), they are sunk and thusly not policy relevant; b) total damage estimates are bad and uncertainty is huge and skewed ...

Policy studies - Wikipedia
Policy studies emerged in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s as an subdisicipline of political science. The study of public policy includes the analysis of both the process of policymaking (the policy process) and the contents of policy (policy analysis). Policy analysis includes substantive area research (such as health or education policy), program evaluation and impact studies, and policy design. It "involves systematically studying the nature, causes, and effects of alternative public policies, with particular emphasis on determining the policies that will achieve given goals." Policy Studies also examines the conflicts and conflict resolution that arise from the making of policies in civil society, the private sector, or more commonly, in the public sector (e.g. government). It frequently focuses on the public sector but is equally applicable to other kinds of organizations (e.g., the not-for-profit sector). Some policy study experts graduate from public policy schools with public ...
Youth policy manual - How to develop a national youth strategy
What is youth policy, and what major elements should a national youth policy strategy include? How can young people be consulted and otherwise involved in developing youth policy? How do institutions such as the European Union, the Council of Europe and the United Nations address youth policy, and how can this work be concretely linked to the efforts of a national government to develop a youth policy agenda?These are some of the essential questions addressed in this publication. The Youth Policy Manual should be considered a resource, a tool and a helpful guide both for policy makers in the youth field and for non-governmental organisations and other stakeholder groups who advocate for improved youth policy at the national level.This manual proposes one possible model for how a national youth policy strategy can be developed. It is based on the authors observations from the countries of South-eastern and eastern Europe, as they gain experience in addressing youth policy in a transversal and cross

Legal and Policy Challenges to Secondary Uses of Information from Electronic Clinical Health Records | AcademyHealth
In order to achieve a learning health care system in which quality and effectiveness of health care are improved as costs are lowered, leveraging electronic health record data for purposes beyond treatment and payment will need to become easier and more widespread. This paper explores the current legal and policy challenges associated with secondary use of electronic clinical data, including those inherently relying on Institutional Review Board (IRB) review, and discusses a number of strategies that early health IT-adopters have employed to address them. The paper closes by noting potential changes to federal research rules that could ease restrictions on research in the future and by raising one additional policy challenge - support for health services research infrastructure - that, if unresolved, could create obstacles to further progress. ...

Chinas HIV/AIDS policy progress displays a long-term stagnancy followed by a sudden revolution. This article utilizes multiple theoretical tools to interpret this policy progress. It identifies four phases of Chinas HIV/AIDS policy process: (1) institutional endurance interpreted by path dependence from historical institutionalism; (2) deinstitutionalization explained by Olivers antecedents of deinstitutionalization; (3) the radical shift interpreted by Kingdons agenda-setting theory; and (4) reinstitutionalization and diffusion of institutional theory. This study demonstrates the utility of "creative borrowing"-employing multiple theoretical tools to harness the strengths of each. Doing so reveals that a countrys past experience with similar policy issues, the perceived political and moral legitimacy of existing policies, and a countrys existing political interests can exert resistance to change. In the presence of multiple pressures for change, policy entrepreneurs who can identify ...
Government policies favouring research for economic returns can overlook existing strengths in arts and humanities | CGHE Blog
Although the Great Recession affected numerous countries around the world, few were as profoundly impacted as Ireland. In the depths of the crisis, real gross domestic product collapsed by 10 per cent, and unemployment ran to almost 15 per cent, priming the context for the Irish government to implement radical policy decisions across a number of areas. Most significant for researchers was the implementation of the Irish governments National Research Prioritisation Exercise policy, which marked the end of what had been a strategy to build a broad base of expertise in higher education. In its stead stood a narrow view of research for economic outcomes. Almost 10 years later, the government adopted a more rounded strategy, Innovation 2020. So, what do these different approaches tell us?. In the wake of the crisis, a series of reviews commenced that sought to redraw the higher education landscape, one of which was the governments policy of research prioritisation. Its overarching objective was to ...

The value of rapid sepsis treatment: New research | Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation
A new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine by a team that includes IHPI members looks at the controversy surrounding how quickly sepsis must be treated.. Using data from 185 hospitals on patients with sepsis and septic shock, researchers found that faster administration of care was linked with lower mortality.. The study team included Michigan Medicine researchers and University of Michigan Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation members Hallie Prescott, M.D., assistant professor of internal medicine, and Theodore Iwashyna, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of internal medicine.. Both time to antibiotics and time to "three-hour bundle" completion were associated with lower risk-adjusted mortality. For every additional hour of delay in these treatments, odds of mortality increased by 4 percent.. "This is the largest study to date looking at time to antibiotics in sepsis treatment," Prescott says. "It was made possible as a result of patient-level data collected in New York ...

The role of power in health policy dialogues: lessons from African countries | BMC Health Services Research | Full Text
Policy-making is a dynamic process involving the interplay of various factors, with power, one of its core components, at the heart of every policy process . Fundamental to any policy process are the roles of the actors. The actors influence the process through their knowledge, experiences, beliefs and power . Although power has a profound role in policy-making, empirical evidence suggests that health policy analysis has paid only limited attention to the issue of power in low and middle income countries . Further, power is rarely examined because this is difficult, requiring a combination of empirical evidence and theorising. The definition of power is ambiguous too, especially when it is used in operational terms for research . Dhal  states that the way power is defined and understood has implications in policy-making. There are conflicting views on power dynamics, including on the common assumption that power is and should always be top-down.. Many of the debates around policy ...

From Great Depression to Great Credit Crisis: Similarities, Differences and Lessons
The Great Depression of the 1930s and the Great Credit Crisis of the 2000s had similar causes but elicited strikingly different policy responses. It may still be too early to assess the effectiveness of current policy responses, but it is possible to analyze monetary and fiscal policies in the 1930s as a "natural experiment" or "counterfactual" capable of shedding light on the impact of recent policies. We employ vector autoregressions, instrumental variables, and qualitative evidence for a panel of 27 countries in the period 1925-1939. The results suggest that monetary and fiscal stimulus was effective - that where it did not make a difference it was not tried. The results also shed light on the debate over fiscal multipliers in episodes of financial crisis. They are consistent with multipliers at the higher end of those estimated in the recent literature, consistent with the idea that the impact of fiscal stimulus will be greater when banking system are dysfunctional and monetary policy is ...
African leadership for sustainable health policy and systems research | BMC Health Services Research | Full Text
The "era of health systems strengthening" can be dated to a ministerial summit held in Mexico City in 2004, which resulted in the Mexico Statement on Health Research and signaled the emergence a new era for global health. It called on national governments to commit more funding to research on health systems and other funders of health research to "support a substantive and sustainable program of health systems research aligned with priority country needs" .. This call came shortly after the launch of large-scale disease-specific initiatives to address HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis, and just as global mobilization began in earnest to address the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). At least three major factors aligned to drive a shift in attention and resources to health systems strengthening: realization that weak health systems impede the achievement of health MDGs, growing evidence on the adverse effects of global health initiatives on national health systems, and the recognition by global ...

Media FHE HEi News New policy papers prompt contrasting views on the way ahead for HE
Rhiannon Birch, Director of Strategic Insights and Planning at the University of Derby, observes how the recent deluge of HE policy papers has brought contrasting reactions and opinions on how the sector should engage with government proposals.. A couple of weeks ago, Nicola Owen wrote for this Blog on the avalanche of policy papers which had emerged from the DfE. With the sheer quantity of policy thrown at the sector, its been interesting to observe how responses have percolated through, and this weeks news provides some points for comparison.. One way of responding to a policy deluge is to think about the sectors positioning and its options to influence future policy development. In terms of a direct approach to policy engagement, Stephen Meeks piece on the Universities Policy Engagement Network (UPEN) highlighted that the relationship between research and policy making has mattered more than ever in the past year, and outlines how policy networks can facilitate direct engagement with ...

From health care to drug wars: grad students investigate
My current research looks at the impact of politicization - political control by elected officials over bureaucracy - on policy formulation in health care. In a comparative case study of France and Turkey, I examine how different forms of political control affect the way in which health policies are formulated and health outcomes are shaped. My dissertation asks two main questions: What explains variation in public bureaucracies performance under similar institutional settings facing politicization? And how do different forms of politicization inform policy advisory roles of expert-bureaucrats and shape policy outcomes in health?. Drawing on policy documents and more than 60 in-depth semi-structured interviews with high-ranked bureaucrats in the ministries of health in France and Turkey, my dissertation hypothesizes that a politicized bureaucracy can take several forms and its effects can vary across institutional settings, policy stages and policy fields.. Therefore a general statement about ...
Canada's Social Policy Framework | Public Policy Forum
According to the International Energy Agency, greenhouse gas emissions from transportation are expected to increase by 120% from 2000 to 2050, largely as a result of a projected three-fold increase in the number of cars worldwide. Without major changes in urban development investments and policy -especially in fast developing countries like China and Brazil-transport emissions are projected to skyrocket, jeopardizing any attempts to stay within a two-degree warming scenario. Beyond greenhouse gases, many transportation system indicators have been moving in the wrong direction, with increasing air pollution, road crash deaths, congestion, and time and money wasted on inefficient mobility.. ITDP has long advocated at the international level to strengthen political will to address climate change, accelerate sustainable development, and increase development finance for low-carbon and equitable transport. In decades of work at the international policy level, ITDP has leveraged hundreds of billions of ...

US recession risks rise due to COVID-19
The government policy environment has already put 2020 business investment on uncertain footing. The disease could be a tipping point for businesses that were considering delaying some investments until at least 2021. Businesses are still licking their wounds from higher tariffs and the slower global growth that followed. The US-China trade deal has mostly represented a cease-fire in the trade war rather than a return to previous trade levels between the two countries. The 2020 general election may also hinder investment plans. The two main presidential candidates will likely have starkly different plans for such key business concerns as taxes, trade, and environmental policy. Credit or asset bubbles, which may have been manageable otherwise, are likely to become a financial liability if the disease or possibly the policy environment causes an economic slowdown. In the US, heavily leveraged corporations will teeter toward default because of sagging domestic demand. Most at risk? The energy and ...

The Dilemma of Federal Mental Health Policy: Radical Reform or Incremental Change? by Gerald N. Grob
The policy-making culture in Slovakia and the whole Central and Eastern Europe has a traditional, predominantly legalistic nature with only little or no access of public / independent experts into policy development. One of the prerequisites of a democratic and well functioning society is effective public administration with a more professional policy making culture. This kind of policy culture is one in which a variety of analytical tools and policy instruments are applied to make and implement relevant, inclusive and high quality public policies, where public is consulted and actively involved into policy formulation, where development, monitoring and evaluation tools are in use, where strategic and project management skills are applied and where the whole process of policy making is transparent. The objectives of the project is to analyze in a case study the existing organizational and institutional arrangements as well as the practice of policy making in Slovakia, analyze the relationship ...
SME Policy Index: Eastern Partner Countries 2016 - Assessing the Implementation of the Small Business Act for Europe - en - OECD
The SME Policy Index is a benchmarking tool designed for emerging economies to assess SME policy frameworks and monitor progress in policy implementation over time. The Index has been developed by the OECD in partnership with the European Commission, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), and the European Training Foundation (ETF) in 2006. For the Eastern Partner Countries, the assessment framework is structured around the ten principles of the Small Business Act for Europe (SBA), providing a wide-range of pro-enterprise measures to guide the design and implementation of SME policies based on good practices promoted by the EU and the OECD. It is applied to the Eastern Partner Countries for the second time since 2012. The Index identifies strengths and weaknesses in policy design and implementation, allows for comparison across countries and measures convergence towards good practices and relevant policy standards. It aims to support governments in setting targets
