Containing health care costs in Japan by Naoki Ikegami( )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Japanese health care system provides universal coverage to a healthy but aging population. Its costs are among the lowest in the world and have remained nearly constant as a share of the economy for more than a decade. Americans concerned about runaway medical spending need to know about the successes that Japan has experienced and the problems the country has encountered in its effort to control costs while maintaining quality of care. Offered here is an analysis of the key issues of cost-containment by specialists followed by reactions from some of America's best-known experts on health care delivery and finance. Topics include the macro-and microeconomics of health care, technology and costs, institutions and costs, attitudinal and behavioral aspects, and the politics of health care. This collection provides an authoritative study of successful cost-containment in the Japanese health care system--a chronicle of success that is neither a statistical illusion nor a result of sociocultural factors. Detailed here is information on the key mechanism of cost constraint: a fee schedule that covers virtually all medical services and rewards inexpensive services while making expensive services unprofitable. This system has resulted in the provision of quality health care to the entire population at roughly half the cost of American health care. Is it a single-payer system? Would the United States have to introduce a dramatically altered health care structure to benefit from the Japanese experience? No. Japan relies mainly on fee-for-service medicine financed by multiple insurers--a system familiar to Americans and one from which many lessons may be learned. Based on conferences held in Washington, D.C., and Izu, Japan, this volume collects original chapters on the overall cost structure, how the negotiated mandatory fee schedule works, specific mechanisms for cost control, the politics of health care financing, and the impact of cost cutting on quality, among other topics. These pathbreaking studies will be a significant resource for policymakers and scholars interested in comparative health care systems as well as those interested in health care reform in the United States
Universal health coverage for inclusive and sustainable development : a synthesis of 11 country case studies by Akiko Maeda( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goals of universal health coverage (UHC) are to ensure that all people can access quality health services, to safeguard all people from public health risks, and to protect all people from impoverishment due to illness, whether from out-of-pocket payments for health care or loss of income when a household member falls sick. Countries as diverse as Brazil, France, Japan, Thailand, and Turkey have shown how UHC can serve as vital mechanisms for improving the health and welfare of their citizens, and lay the foundation for economic growth and competitiveness grounded in the principles of equit
Universal health coverage for inclusive and sustainable development : lessons from Japan by Naoki Ikegami( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goals of universal health coverage (UHC) are to ensure that all people can access quality health services, to safeguard all people from public health risks, and to protect all people from impoverishment due to illness, whether from out-of-pocket payments for health care or loss of income when a household member falls sick. Countries as diverse as Brazil, France, Japan, Thailand, and Turkey have shown how UHC can serve as a vital mechanism for improving the health and welfare of their citizens and lay the foundation for economic growth and competitiveness grounded in the principles of equity and sustainability. Ensuring universal access to affordable, quality health services will be an important contribution to ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity in low-income and middle-income countries, where most of the world's poor live. Universal Health Coverage for Inclusive and Sustainable Development synthesizes the experiences from 11 countries-Bangladesh, Brazil, Ethiopia, France, Ghana, Indonesia, Japan, Peru, Thailand, Turkey, and Vietnam-in implementing policies and strategies to achieve and sustain UHC. These countries represent diverse geographic and economic conditions, but all have committed to UHC as a key national aspiration and are approaching it in different ways. The book examines the UHC policies for each country around three common themes: (1) the political economy and policy process for adopting, achieving, and sustaining UHC; (2) health financing policies to enhance health coverage; and (3) human resources for health policies for achieving UHC. The findings from these country studies are intended to provide lessons that can be used by countries aspiring to adopt, achieve, and sustain UHC. Although the path to UHC is specific to each country, countries can benefit from the experiences of others in learning about different approaches and avoiding potential risks
The art of balance in health policy : maintaining Japan's low-cost, egalitarian system by John Creighton Campbell( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Japan has a healthy population compared with the rest of the world, yet the Japanese pay relatively little for medical care. This book analyzes how Japan's health-care system works and how it came into being. Although the authors discuss the drawbacks to Japan's stringent cost-containment policy, they also keep in mind the possible implications for reform in the United States."--BOOK JACKET
Long-term care for frail older people : reaching for the ideal system( Book )

13 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aging of society is a growing concern in all advanced nations, and at the forefront of concern is long-term care for frail older people. Enactment of a new public long-term care insurance program by the Japanese government in 1997 provided an excellent opportunity for a conference focusing on an ideal long-term care system for frail older people. The conference was organized around four major themes: Social aspects, including family dynamics and the role of formal providers; Clinical aspects, including effective treatments for physical and mental disabilities; Macroeconomic and macropolitical settings for public policy; Program design and management issues. With contributions from the fields of medicine, nursing, social work, gerontology, political science, economics, and sociology, this volume provides an overview of key problems and possible solutions in programs for frail older people from a unique international perspective

4 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and French and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La CSU a pour objectifs de s'assurer que tous peuvent avoir acces a des services de sante de qualite, de preserver l'ensemble des individus contre les risques a la sante publique et de proteger toutes les personnes contre l'appauvrissement attribuable a la maladie. Des pays aussi divers que le Bresil, la France, le Japon, la Thailande et la Turquie ont reussi a mettre en cuvre la CSU et illustrent comment ces programmes peuvent a la fois agir en tant que dispositifs essentiels d'amelioration de la sante et du bien-etre de leurs citoyens et mettre en place les fondations d'une croissance economique basee sur des principes d'equite et de durabilite. L'assurance d'un acces universel a des services de sante abordables et de qualite contribuera de facon importante a l'eradication de la pauvrete extreme en 2030 et a la stimulation d'une prosperite partagee dans les pays a revenu faible et intermediaire, ou vit la majorite de la population pauvre mondiale. 'La couverture sanitaire universelle pour un developpement durable inclusif' synthetise les experiences de 11 pays Bangladesh, Bresil, Ethiopie, France, Ghana, Indonesie, Japon, Perou, Thailande, Turquie et Vietnam dans la mise en cuvre de politiques et de strategies d'atteinte et de maintien de la CSU. Tous ces pays se sont engages envers l'atteinte de la CSU, consideree comme une aspiration nationale cle, mais ont adopte a cet effet des approches distinctes. L'ouvrage examine les politiques de CSU de chaque pays a partir de 3 themes communs : (1) l'economie politique et le processus politique d'adoption, d'atteinte et de maintien de la CSU; (2) les politiques financieres d'amelioration de la couverture sanitaire; et (3) les ressources humaines en sante au service des politiques d'atteinte de la CSU. Les constats tires de ces etudes pays sont une source d'enseignements auxquels peuvent faire reference les pays qui aspirent a l'adoption, a l'atteinte et au maintien de la CSU. Meme si la voie vers la CSU reste specifique a chaque pays, tous peuvent profiter des experiences des autres en apprenant des differentes approches et en evitant les risques potentiels
