Optimal Regulation of Specialized Medical Care in a Mixed System

By Nicol? Porteiro-Fresco

Abstract

We study the optimal public intervention in setting minimum standards of formation for specialized medical care. The abilities the physicians obtain by means of their training allow them to improve their performance as providers of cure and earn some monopoly rents.. Our aim is to characterize the most efficient regulation in this field taking into account different regulatory frameworks. We find that the existing situation in some countries, in which the amount of specialization is controlled, and the costs of this process of specialization are publicly financed, can be supported as the best possible intervention.Specialized Medical Care, Mixed Systems, Regulation
