Literature Review: Regulation problem for Healthcare

This “Ten Problems for Healthcare in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students’ theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. delivery,
  2. access,
  3. economics,
  4. digital,
  5. artificial intelligence,
  6. pharma,
  7. regulation,
  8. special needs,
  9. wellbeing,
  10. workforce.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

7 Regulation

THE PROBLEM — Few economic sectors are more regulated than healthcare. Transnational challenges are also cause of concern. Despite widespread faith that quality indicators are key to healthcare improvement and regulation, surprisingly little is known about what is actually measured in different countries.

CONCLUSIONS — Regulatory fields in countries worldwide are showing significant improvements and increased interprofessional healthcare collaboration presence in legal texts. While excessive healthcare regulation is a bad thing, regulation compliance brings with it the benefits of market entry, product quality and availability, as well as access to tax rebates and credit benefits. Medical tourism occupies different spaces within national policy frameworks depending on which side of the transnational paradigm countries belong to. European countries’ regulators strike very different balances in: the dimensions of healthcare quality they assess; and the measurement style of their indicators. Federal and state healthcare regulations have over time created the complex United States healthcare system of today. The regulatory system of the NHS in the United Kingdom is not fully understood even by professional regulators and government. In the Russian Federation, the foundation of the healthcare system is made up by an extensive post-soviet network of healthcare facilities. Indonesia is experiencing significant health-related challenges since most of its citizens do not appropriately apprehend some of the most important health policies. Public health agencies are particularly susceptible to ‘regulatory capture’, a process by which an agency advances the special interests of the industries and of other actors it is entrusted with regulating. The new mandatory health insurance system in Abu Dhabi has led to an improved situation where virtually all residents have access to the required care.
