Designing and Implementing Health Care Provider Payment Systems

Strategic purchasing of health services involves a continuous search for the best ways to maximize health system performance by deciding which interventions should be purchased, from whom these should be purchased, and how to pay for them. In such an arrangement, the passive cashier is replaced by an intelligent purchaser that can focus scarce resources on existing and emerging priorities rather than continuing entrenched historical spending patterns.Having experimented with different ways of paying providers of health care services, countries increasingly want to know not only what to do when paying providers, but also how to do it, particularly how to design, manage, and implement the transition from current to reformed systems. 'Designing and Implementing Health Care Provider Payment Systems: How-To Manuals' addresses this need.The book has chapters on three of the most effective provider payment systems: primary care per capita (capitation) payment, case-based hospital payment, and hospital global budgets. It also includes a primer on a second policy lever used by purchasers, namely, contracting. This primer can be especially useful with one provider payment method: hospital global budgets. The volume's final chapter provides an outline for designing, launching, and running a health management information system, as well as the necessary infrastructure for strategic purchasing.

The text explores schematic circuits of simple transponders and readers, and includes new material on active and passive transponders, ISO/IEC 18000 family, ISO/IEC 15691 and 15692. It also describes the technical limits of RFID systems. A unique resource offering a complete overview of the large and varied world of RFID, Klaus Finkenzeller’s volume is useful for end-users of the technology as well as practitioners in auto ID and IT designers of RFID products. Computer and electronics engineers in security system development, microchip designers, and materials handling specialists benefit from this book, as do automation, industrial and transport engineers. Clear and thorough explanations also make this an excellent introduction to the topic for graduate level students in electronics and industrial engineering design.

This book presents the methods and findings of a critical review of the "Dictionary of Occupational Titles" (DOT) published by the United States Department of Labor. Following an introduction to the scope of the study in the first chapter, the book describes the study and its results in eight following chapters. Chapter 2 contains a detailed description of the current edition of the DOT to suggest to readers the nature of the document. Chapters 3 and 4 describe the ways that the DOT and associated materials are used inside and outside the Department of Labor Employment Service. Chapters 5 and 6 describe how the DOT is produced: Chapter 5 focuses on the organization of the occupational analysis program of the Employment Service, the unit charged with producing the DOT, and Chapter 6 describes the process by which the current edition was created. Chapters 7 and 8 evaluate the DOT: Chapter 7 focuses on the adequacy of the data it contains, and Chapter 8 discusses the DOT and other classification systems as tools for assessing the similarity of occupations. Chapter 9 presents the committee's conclusions and recommendations. In addition to the nine chapters of the report, eight appendixes provide data or detailed analysis of specific topics. (KC)
