Health Economics Theory for Empirical Economists: Modelling the Demand for and Supply of Health Services
This course provides an overview of microeconomic models that can be used to investigate the demand for and the supply of health services. On the demand for health care and health, the course will describe models that i) adopt a representative consumer approach, or ii) allow for heterogeneity in preferences and need (e.g. severity, distance). About the supply side, the course will illustrate theoretical models on provider incentives towards intensity of care, quality and costs under a range of assumptions (e.g. capacity constraints, competition) and payment systems (e.g. fixed price regulation, and pay for performance). This course is designed for Ph.D. students and early career researchers and aims to achieve the following learning objectives:
- Gain familiarity with a range of demand- and supply-side theoretical models used in Health Economics
- Understand how to use theory to motivate, guide and complement the empirical analysis
- Learn key modelling strategies and trade-offs
The course will be taught by Professor Luigi Siciliani from the University of York. Luigi’s research interests include waiting times for non-emergency treatment, hospital quality competition, contracting theory applied to health care, pay for performance and coordination between health and social care.
