Current work:
Effects of reimbursement mechanisms on the quantity of provided healthcare

Dissertation topic:
Links between reimbursement and performance of the Czech healthcare sector

Disertation abstract:
In my thesis, I will describe how individual reimbursement mechanisms work, what kind of behaviour they theoretically encourage and what has been their actual impact on healthcare system performance. Czech reimbursement system has experienced many changes in the past ranging from annual updated to large scale reforms. Further the system of multiple insurance companies and freedom to choose the preferred reimbursement scheme allows the coexistence of several insurance mechanisms, even within a single hospital. The Czech healthcare system along with its changes offers a large potential for policy evaluation research which has not been done in the past.

The results of this thesis would be a more complete theoretical understanding of the links between healthcare agents’ motivation, reimbursement and outcomes which would be backed by empirical evidence and analysis. Beside the theoretical advancement, the thesis would offer a range of policy implications for the healthcare sector based on the policy evaluation of past reimbursement changes.
