FEDERICO CILIBERTO, RICHARD C. LINDROOTH,

We study the exit of hospitals from the market for inpatient services. More generous hospital reimbursement significantly reduces the probability of exit throughout the 1990s. Conditional on reimbursement levels, hospital efficiency was not a significant determinant in the early 1990s but in the midto late 1990s, less efficient hospitals were significantly more likely to exit. Throughout the pe...

This paper analyses the design of hospital reimbursement in an industry with imperfect competition, scarcity of labour and socially costly government transfers. We find that hospital competition may increase both quantity and quality of hospital care, and if this is the case prospective payment has an unambigious positive effect on both quantity and quality. Hospitals may produce too little or ...

Matt Schmitt,

Hospitals in the U.S. increasingly belong to multihospital systems that operate in multiple geographic markets. A large literature in management and economics suggests that competition between firms may be softened as a result of multimarket contact – i.e., when firms compete with one another in several markets simultaneously. I test whether increases in multimarket contact over the 2000-2010 p...

The difficult current economic climate is riddled with change and uncertainty, and the hospital industry is not immune to the effects. In fact hospitals face an unprecedented series of challenges, including poor economic conditions, increasing competition, and greater reporting requirements. On top of these issues, the healthcare reform law looms, with a great deal of perplexity regarding its u...

We present a dynamic model of the hospital industry in which nonprofit and for-profit hospitals coexist and compete and are differentiated by their objective functions, investment technologies, and taxation rates. In our model, patients differ by income and type of insurance coverage, and choose admission to their preferred hospital, while hospitals choose investment, entry, exit, and pricing s...

It is well known that mergers often occur in waves, and this paper develops a new mechanism for merger waves: expectations over industry shocks. We develop a simple test of this explanation and use it to explore the role of expectations in the context of the 1990s hospital merger wave. Managed care such as Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) started to become popular in the late 1980s and u...

T Affordable Care Act (ACA) has unleashed a merger frenzy, with hospitals scrambling to shore up their market positions, improve operational efficiency, and create organizations capable of managing population health. The figures are impressive: 105 deals were reported in 2012 alone, up from 50 to 60 annually in the pre-ACA, pre-recession years of 2005–2007.1 This activity could have lasting rep...

This paper examines the diagnosis related group-level (DRG) price effects of recent hospital mergers and acquisitions that occurred in Ohio and California. Empirical results indicate that hospital mergers and acquisitions increase prices at the DRG level. Further, price increases are greater in DRGs where the merging hospitals gained substantial market share compared to DRGs where the merging h...

This paper investigates whether management teams that fail to exploit regulatory loopholes are vulnerable to replacement. We use the U.S. hospital industry in 1985–96 as a case study. A 1988 change in Medicare rules widened a preexisting loophole in the Medicare payment system, presenting hospitals with an opportunity to increase operating margins by 5 or more percentage points simply by “upcod...

The long-standing argument that focused operations outperform others stands in contrast to claims about the benefits of broader operational scope. The performance benefits of focus are typically attributed to reduced complexity, lower uncertainty, and the development of specialized expertise, while the benefits of greater breadth are linked to the economies of scope achieved by sharing common r...
