Description:
My paper this morning arises from my forthcoming ESRI Research Report on Irish medical Care Utilisat ion are Expenditures. I am happy to be able to preview some of that paper's implications with you; I must confess that I would be happier still were I presenting the final published paper rather than a preview. The substance of the work is complete , and the editorial work is in its final stages. It is our hope to have a publication available within a few months. My topic is efficiency and the control of expenditures in the Irish medical care system . As economic incentives a re crucial in t his matter , I will review both patient and provider incentives , and proposed changes in these. In the process , I will comment on the recent Report of the Working Party on the General Medical Service (1984). I will then review and assess four main models which have been or might be proposed as the basis for a restructured Irish system. The principal problem facing the Irish medical care system today is control of expenditures. Utilisation levels, resources applied to each unit of utilisation, and prices or costs of resources have been rising at explosive , unsustainable rates .
