« Geographic variation in hospitalization use in France »
 

par William Weeks (MD, PhD, MBA - The Dartmouth Institute), titulaire de la Chaire Tocqueville-Fulbright  à l’Université d’Aix-Marseille, résident IMéRA-AMSE, accueilli au GREQAM et au SESSTIM.

 

Geographic variation in use of healthcare services has been widely studied in the US, where excessive variation is considered evidence of healthcare system waste that could be reduced by policy interventions.  In France, geographic variation in use of healthcare services has not been as widely studied.  In this lecture, Dr. Weeks will provide results of his analysis of geographic variation in the use of hospitals for common elective surgical procedures and for ambulatory care sensitive conditions in France between 2009 – 2013.  Trends in rates of admission, characteristics of admissions, use of for-profit and not-for-profit hospitals, and comparisons to rates of admission in the US will be explored.
