  1. The marketplace in health care reform : the demographic limitations of managed competition.

    Article - En anglais

    Background.

    The theory of managed competition holds that the quality and economy of health care delivery will improve if independent provider groups compete for consumers.

    In sparsely populated areas where relatively few providers are required, however, it is not feasible to divide the provider community into competing groups.

    We examined the demographic features of health markets in the United States to see what proportion of the population lives in areas that might successfully support managed competition.
