Diffusion of hospital innovations in different institutional settings


Zweifel, Peter (1995). Diffusion of hospital innovations in different institutional settings. International Journal of the Economics of Business, 2(3):465-483.

Abstract

This paper purports to analyze a hospital's adoption of both product and process innovation as a quantal choice. The impacts of this decision on physicians, while depending on institutions that differ between the US and continental Europe, are shown to feed back to the hospital, influencing the profitability of the innovation. Recent changes of hospital finance give rise to testable comparative predictions in both institutional settings.
