French health economist Julien Mousquès says France has more barriers to the development of group medical practices than other countries, many of which have policies that explicitly encourage integrated primary care systems as a way to promote efficiency in health care.
In a CHEPA seminar on May 18, Mousquès, the Research Director at the Institute for Research and Information in Health Economics (Institut de Recherche et Documentation en Economie de la santé, IRDES) in Paris, will describe the impact on efficiency, productivity, and patient outcomes of a reform in France designed to encourage the development of integrated Primary Care Teams (PCTs).
His presentation, Learnings about the impact of integrated care on efficiency - The cases of French Primary Care Teams in France and Accountable Care Organizations in the USA, will also describe results from qualitative and explanatory research on the impact of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) in the United States.
The seminar will be held on Weds. May 18 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Communications Research Lab (CRL) B119. All are welcome. The seminar will be available remotely for those unable to attend.
