On Wednesday 29th April, Dr Irene Papanicolas and Dr Alistair McGuire will lead an OHE Lunchtime Seminar on the impact of different payment policies on activity for Hip Replacement.
Dr Papanicolas and Dr McGuire will compare the case based payment mechanism in England, to an alterative payment system in Scotland, where this financial incentive does not exist.
A difference-in-difference estimator is used to test whether the differences in reimbursement between the two countries has had an influence on treatment.

He has been interested in the economics of health care for over 20 years, with extensive teaching experience and has written numerous books, articles and reports in this area on a wide range of subject matter.
The seminar will be held in the Sir Alexander Fleming room, 7th Floor, Southside, 105 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QT. A buffet lunch will be available from 12:00 noon. The seminar will start promptly at 12.30 pm and finish promptly at 2.00 pm.
