Health Resources Administration (DHEW/PHS), Bethesda, MD. Div. of Manpower Intelligence.
The document's research concerns are directed to the study of various dimensions of health care delivery systems and the dynamics of health manpower supply and requirements. It attempts to explore and determine the effectiveness of the economic system as a surrogate in health planning for the health care delivery system, and to estimate the interrelationships of the health manpower education systems with the economic system and the health care delivery system. The overall objectives of the project were to determine the applicability of regional economic theory in this framework, thus lending further insights into the process of locational decision-making, and developing a useful tool and perspective for the health planner. The document represents a summary of the major activities, findings, and conclusions identified in the final report of the research. It describes the major hypotheses and findings, and policy implications of the study. A 12-page bibliography is given under the topics of economics and health. (Author/EC)
