Health care policy and reform a comparative study of policy making and the health care systems in five OECD countries.

Le Fevre, Anne M. January 1997 (has links)
Many of the assumptions underlying health care issues appear to be taken for granted by policy makers, when if fact they ought to be examined for their relevance to today's problems. This research attempts to do so, by analysing the non-economic issues and factors involved in the financing and provision of health care. It will be argued that policy makers commonly have a unidirectional economic perspective in both policy making and in health care system reform directives, a situation which leaves issues such as the health status of the population and of equity in resource allocation to political rhetoric, while in practice, policies deal with the issue of cost reduction. Of major importance is the moral dimension in policies dealing with health and welfare, which is clearly either forgotten or is afforded too little consideration in policy making. This is particularly relevant to the issue of rationing of health care in publicly provided health care systems. While always quietly practised by clinicians in the past, rationing is now required to be overt because demand for health care has outstripped available resources.The substance of the argument comes from the analysis of a very large literature on the broader issues affecting health care policy, such as concepts of social justice, ethics of resource allocation and the physician-patient relationship, all of winch ought to underpin policies for the mechanisms of funding and provision of health care systems.A conceptual diagram of a health care system is offered to provide a framework for the discussion of how the issues are interrelated at micro, meso and macro levels in policymaking. Examples of reforms to health care systems are taken from five OECD countries which share a common social, political and economic heritage: Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Canada and the United States of America.The conclusions ++ / from this research show that theoretical incoherence pervades this most complex of policy areas, allowing the economic imperative to take precedence over the substantive health care issues.

A study of the dynamics of the private health care market in the United Kingdom, with particular reference to the impact of British United Provident Association (Bupa) Provider and benefit initiatives

Royce, Robert Gregory January 2011 (has links)
The private health care market in the United Kingdom is a multi-billion pound industry whose dynamics remain largely unexamined. This is so even though the boundaries between the public and private sectors are becoming increasingly blurred, particularly in England. Given the growing importance of this sector, the policy community needs to know more about the nature of private health care in the UK, how well the private market operates and how successful have been the various attempts within it to improve value for money and health care quality, given that private health care has traditionally been seen by many citizens as unaffordable. In particular this thesis traces recent efforts by the British United Provident Association (Bupa) to reshape the UK private healthcare market. The account provided draws on the author's experience as a senior Bupa manager involved in planning and implementing such changes. The thesis describes a series of Bupa initiatives designed to change provider behaviour in pursuit of improved quality and value-for-money, and the difficulties and obstacles encountered. The latter often centred on tensions or confrontation between the insurer and professional providers that are discussed in relation to the wider literature on the social and economic organisation of health care markets. An attempt has been made to draw some general conclusions via an empirical study of the role and limitations of market-based changes within the UK private sector. The broad conclusion is that the private market in the UK exemplifies those features of health care seen throughout the developed world that create imperfect market conditions. As such the market is highly resistant to insurer initiatives that would reverse the longstanding trend for premiums to rise above the rate of inflation. It is considered unlikely given the current market structure that any insurer, including Bupa, can escape these constraints in the short term. However, Bupa has implemented some successful initiatives that suggest that longer-term incremental change is possible.

Survival of nonprofit community health clinics

Schemmer, Ruth Ann 16 August 2006 (has links)
In the provision of public goods such as health care for the uninsured, nonprofit organizations serve important functions in society. Because they often rely on volunteer labor, and funding is frequently unstable, their survival depends on factors not present in either private enterprise or state agencies. This comparison case study examines three clinics, one surviving clinic and two that did not survive, to find patterns that characterize organizational success and survival. Theories about public goods, volunteering, and organizational coordination and communication provide insight into different aspects of the case study. Data was gathered from 19 in-depth interviews with individuals connected to the three clinics. The analysis employs Ostrom’s characterization of eight principles of longstanding common-pool resource organizations, with slight adjustments for the public goods setting. As expected, the successful clinic reflects more of the characteristics, or possesses them to a greater degree, than the unsuccessful ones. Specifically, the successful clinic reflects a greater degree of congruence between organizational rules and local conditions (as evidenced by community support), and collective-choice arrangements (as indicated by the presence of an actively engaged board of directors). In addition, the successful clinic is loosely nested with other organizations, whereas the nonsurviving clinics were more tightly nested within local organizations; the looser nesting allows for greater autonomy in decision-making. Finally, an unexpected finding drawn from the interviews concerns the manner in which the clinics framed their message and mission. The successful clinic framed its mission in terms of serving the “working poor,” whereas the nonsurviving clinics stated their mission as charity for the poor and needy. This variance may have contributed to greater community support for the successful clinic.

An analysis of the "team" concept in the health care literature /

Hermary, Martin Ted January 1991 (has links)
This thesis provides an account of the discussions of the "team" concept in health care literature since the early 1920s. It is argued that by adopting a historical, social constructionist stance, this thesis makes an original contribution to the literature. The research consisted of an inductive analysis of the "team" literature aiming to typify the ways in which the "team" concept has been constructed and historical, national or professional differences which have occurred. Historically, claims about "teamwork" in health care have occurred in four phases: (1) a statement of basic issues and themes; (2) the emergence of ideas of flexibility and adaptability; (3) a period of optimism; and (4) the co-existence of positive, sceptical, and critical claims. The professional and national differences in claims-making activities are also discussed. The least challenged claims about, and recent re-evaluations of, the "team" concept are also discussed.
