Blurb/Shorttext:
Government cost containment policies, in particular, fixed price reimbursement, has substantial influence on the nature of market structure of the dialysis industry and the ways dialysis facilities respond to those policies as well as the facility performance of efficiency. There exist however lack of information on the relationships between the degree of market competition, facility characteristics reflecting differential behavior in achieving efficiency and technical efficiency in producing dialysis treatments in a non-price competitive market. This book addresses the question "how do market structure and facility conduct of dialysis providers relate to the technical efficiency in producing multiple dialysis outputs?" To do so, unlike previous research, a conceptual framework is drawn from the perspective of industrial organization theory and analyzed using the techniques of Data Envelopment Analysis and regression. Information provided in this book should acquire an interest especially by health services researchers and practitioners who are involved in the dialysis industry and efficiency measurement, and also students studying performance measurement in the health care sector.
