讲座主题:Hospital Choice by Uninformed Patients

主讲人:袁鸿杰,武汉大学经济与管理学院助理教授

讲座时间:10月30日(周五)11:00—12:00

讲座地点:经管院A221

主办单位:武汉大学健康经济与管理研究中心



讲座提要:Patient hospital choices have attracted a lot of research attention. Past studies have shown that patients tend to choose hospitals with short distances and high quality. However, most of these studies utilize the settings in developed countries where patients choose hospitals after consulting general practitioners–patients make informed choices. We utilize a unique setting in China, where patients directly go to a hospital without the support of general practitioners. This project aims to model how self-judgment of health status, financial constraints, and preferences over hospital characteristics jointly determine patients’ hospital choices. Utilizing patients’ transfers between hospitals, we can estimate the relative importance of misjudgment of medical conditions, and patients’ elasticity to healthcare prices. We also conduct counterfactual analyses to measure the welfare implication of alleviating information asymmetry.
