Pakistan Journal of Medical Sciences. September 2015; 31(5):1-6. Available from Academic Search Complete, Ipswich, MA. Accessed October 23, 2015.
Theme:Provider (hospital, physician and all clinician) quality:
- What market failure is the state correcting by requiring the licensing of health care providers? Could the private sector have the equivalent effect? Compare the advantages of a public regulation system to the advantages of a private regulation system. (3-4 pages)
- Currently the State only provides a license permitting medical practice, which is essentially a quality floor. Should the state do more, such as ranking physician quality? Should the state do less by not requiring a license to practice medicine? (3-4 pages)
Please use specific examples and support your argument with data from the academic literature. You may support your argument by using data from the United States or making comparisons to standards of practice in other countries including both the practices and the outcomes resulting from the practice.
