Incentives and choice in health care

Contributor(s): Sloan, Frank A. [ed.] | Kasper, Hirschel [ed.].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Cambridge MIT Press 2008Description: ix, 419p.ISBN: 9780262693653.Subject(s): Medical economics | United StatesDDC classification: 338.473621 | In2 Summary: Leading scholars in the field of health economics evaluate the role of incentives in health and health-care decision making from the perspectives of both supply and demand. A vast body of empirical evidence has accumulated demonstrating that incentives affect health care choices made by both consumers and suppliers of health care services. Decisions in health care are affected by many types of incentives, such as the rate of return pharmaceutical manufacturers expect on their investments in research and development, or disincentives, such as increases in copayments patients must make when they visit physicians or are admitted to hospitals. In this volume, leading scholars in health economics review these new and important results and describe their own recent research assessing the role of incentives in health care markets and decisions people make that affect their personal health. The contexts include demand decisions-choices made by individuals about health care services they consume and the health insurance policies they purchase-and supply decisions made by medical students, practicing physicians, hospitals, and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Researchers and students of health economics and policy makers will find this book a valuable resource, both for learning economic concepts, particularly as they apply to health care, and for reading up-to-date summaries of the empirical evidence. General readers will find the book's chapters accessible, interesting, and useful for gaining an understanding of the likely effects of alternative health care policies. Contributors Henry J.
