PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Issues that should be considered include the choice of perspective, which will help determine the interventions studied and the measures of effectiveness and cost-effectiveness chosen. Unique challenges in this area include the fact that serious measurable morbidity is relatively unc...

ABSTRACT: Data from a 1997 nationwide telephone survey are used to assess the relationship between choice and public opinion about managed care. We found that only a minority of the working-age population effectively control what health plan they get. Persons without choice were markedly more dissatisfied with their health plan, especially when enrolled in managed care. In multivariate analysis, how respondents rated their health plan depended as much on whether they lacked choice as on whether ...

ABSTRACT: This DataWatch examines the relationship between managed care enrollment and access to care for low-income adults with Medicaid and compares their experience with that of low-income, privately insured managed care enrollees. Medicaid managed care enrollees are more likely than low-income, privately insured managed care enrollees to be poorer, have health problems, and experience access problems. Compared with low-income populations in fee-for-service care, managed care enrollees, wheth...

The health care market dynamics that supported and directed the growth and development of Academic Health Centers (AHCs) have changed dramatically in the last 10 years. AHCs are struggling to adapt to new reimbursement mechanisms and to compete effectively for limited dollars, but are constrained by administrative and governance structures that are slow to evolve. Their multiple missions, including education, research, and care for complex patients and underserved populations, are at risk. Altho...

Nurse administrators are searching for an expanded repertoire of strategies to attract and retain qualified nursing staff in today's managed care environment. This study examined hospital registered nurses' interpretations of managed care and the effects of those views on nurses' identification with their employing organization and the nursing profession. Findings show that nurses held greater identification with their occupation than their organization. Significant factors influencing nurses'at...
