Global Launch of the LSE-Lancet Commission on the Future of the NHS: Re-laying the foundations for an equitable and efficient health and care service post COVID-19

We are delighted to invite you to the launch of the LSE-Lancet Commission report.

The issues raised by the Commission are wide-ranging, from establishing sustainable funding to securing a sufficient and skilled workforce. Crucially, the Commission also considers recommendations to strengthen preparedness to protect against further acute shocks and major threats to health like the COVID-19 pandemic, including measures to address health inequalities in the population and the difficulties in accessing consistent and high-quality health and social care, while also considering changing health care needs set against the background of shifting public expectations and involvement in health care.

Physician performance pay: experimental evidence

This paper presents causal evidence on the effect of performance pay on health care provision from a behavioral experiment with a representative sample of German primary care physicians. We analyze how performance pay compared to capitation affects physicians' health care service provision and the quality of care. We find that performance pay reduces under-provision of care prevalent under capitation. The effect increases with patients' severities of illness. Already small incentives are effective in enhancing the quality of care. Linking behavioral data to physician register data indicates that physicians in high-profit practices and practicing in cities are most responsive to incentives.
