assessing willingness to pay

The doctor patient relationship is critical for vulnerable patients as they valued this relationship to a large extent. Other attribute improvements are: geographical proximity (−0.48; p < 0.01), waiting time (−0.27; p < 0.10), staff attitude (−0.27; p < 0.10), seeing the same health professional (−0.37; p < 0.05), improved doctor-patient relationship (−0.59; p < 0.10) and improved chance of recovery (−0.26). On the other hand, higher educated patients were willing to pay less to benefit from improvements in the doctor-patient relationship (−0.4%), drug availability (−0.2%) and chance of recovery (−0.1%) attributes. Females expressed negative willing to pay for the Staff Attitude (−0.10 BDT), see the same health professional (−1.44 BDT), Doctor-Patient Relationship (−8.39 BDT) and Chance of Recovery (−17.64 BDT; significant at 5% level). 2011;1:4–11. E-mail address: karina_gallardo@wsu.edu. However, the sex variable was not significant. Secondly, the marginal effects β′ and β″ were estimated where, β′ explained the marginal effects for the probability of being uncensored and β″ explained the marginal effects for the expected WTP value conditional on being uncensored: E (WTP | WTP > 0).

On the other hand, those who have “rare” do not probably feel the advantage of meeting the same doctor every time. 0000002376 00000 n Willingness to pay values are calculated as the ratios of two parameters, with the price parameter in the denominator. On the other hand, they were willing to pay less than the patients living in urban areas to benefit from improvements over all other attributes: geographical proximity (−6%), staff attitude (−40%), doctor-patient relationship (−5%), drug availability (−5%) and chance of recovery (−3%). In general, 22.2% of patients felt that their treatment was “excellent” by the staff of the hospital. 1998;1:597–609. 0000013363 00000 n Klose T. The contingent valuation method in health care.

Assessing willingness to pay for improved sanitation in rural Vietnam. Assessing willingness to pay for health care quality improvements. On average, patients waited 73 minutes (max = 240 minutes) before seeing the doctor. More than 100 new private clinics and hospitals and 200 new diagnostic centres open every year [1]. These results were significant at the 5% level and at the 1% level respectively. Drug availability for “none” was significant at the 1% level. 1. Patients were also willing to pay in order to be “always” able to meet the same doctor in the hospital. 0000101573 00000 n Econometrica. JG contributed to manuscript construction, revision, editing and structure. It can be argued that, those who “often” meet the same doctor might have estimated that it was not worthwhile to pay more just to see her/him every time because next time they will most probably meet the same one. MSP coordinated data collection, analysis and interpretation of data, and wrote the manuscript draft. Assessing Willingness to Pay for Health Care Quality Improvements Abstract Background Contingent valuation (CV) is used to estimate the willingness to pay (WTP) of consumers for specific attributes to improve the quality of health care they received in three hospitals in Bangladesh. Improvements over seven quality attributes were separately assessed using a decomposed valuation scenario [11], the attributes and their corresponding measurement scales with hypothesis are downloadable as an Additional file 1. This result also suggested that when the chance of recovery score decreased as assessed by the RECOVSC score patients willing to pay more to benefit from the doctor. 0000099757 00000 n The quality of health care, as well as people’s preferences for health care, has changed in Bangladesh over the past 20 years. This makes willingness to pay a crucial factor when finding the best price to sell a product at, for both the seller and buyer. Patients are willing to pay for improvement staff attitudes as shown by the “very bad”, “bad”, and “good” were respectively 9.36, −19.65 and −20.22 BDT. To assess doctor patient relationship (DPRSC) score and chance of recovery (RECOVSC) score patients’ were asked to state whether they “strongly disagree”, “disagree”, “undecided”, “agree” or “strongly agree” on five Likert questions and were coded as 1 to 5, respectively.

Van Minh H 1, Nguyen-Viet H, Nguyen-Viet H, Thanh NH, Yang JC. Table 2 presents patients’ current estimation for the seven attributes used to measure the quality of services. Staff attitude for “bad” was significant at 5% level and “good” was significant at 1% level. BMC Health Services Research 0000004883 00000 n Patients who did not find any of their prescribed medications in the hospital were willing to pay more than those who found “some” or “all” of their medications. We also examined the effects of socio-economic factors on the WTP. Am Sociol Rev. Verbal informed consent was obtained before proceeding with the interview. Cookies policy. This study provides important information to policy makers about the monetary valuation of patients for improvements in certain attributes of health care in Bangladesh. Similarly, elderly patients were willing to pay less than younger patients for the all attributes except the drug availability attribute. 0000012379 00000 n The Tobit model has the advantage of being able to efficiently estimate the relationship between an explanatory variable and some (censored) dependent variable to estimate the probability of a dependent variable being at or below (above) a limit [14,15]. 0 Google Scholar. Google Scholar. Tests for specification errors in classical linear least squares regression analysis. The geographical location of the patient’s home played a role in their stated WTP values. Given this situation a contingent valuation (CV) study was designed to assess peoples’ willingness to pay (WTP) for health care quality improvements. Drug availability for “none” was significant at the 1% level. Springer Nature. In some cases, there is a lack of availability of essential drugs due to fluctuating production levels or prohibitive cost. These results indicate that patients treated in private hospitals were more or less satisfied with their current doctor patient relationship and chances of recovery. https://doi.org/10.1186/s12913-015-0678-6, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1186/s12913-015-0678-6. Moreover, drug availability for “none” and “some”, patients were willing to pay 56.03 and 19.84 BDT respectively; where the former was significant at the 1% level. This signifies that there is a significant demand for better staff attitudes. Mitchell R, Carson R. Using surveys to value public goods: the contingent valuation method. Majumder MA. Finally, in marginal effects for drug availability, results suggest that the probability that patients were willing to pay in order to be “none” and “some” were respectively 21% and 6%. Tobin J. Estimation of relationships for limited dependent variables. Patients were also willing to pay in order to be “never”, “rare” and “often” able to meet the same doctor in the hospital respectively 26.96, −35.59 and −6.23 BDT. Soc Sci Med. 1992;57:503–7. Kenneth G. Willis . J Environ Econ Manag. Patients living in rural areas declared higher WTP values for lower waiting times (1%) and being able to meet the same health professional (1%). 0000100343 00000 n On the other hand, patients coming to the hospital for an acute or common illness were willing to pay more than those who come to the hospital due to improvements in waiting times (0.61), and staff attitude (3.52) attributes. This means that the probability that a patient declares a positive WTP value decreases as the DPR-score or the Chance of Recovery score increase – a higher DPR - and Chance of Recovery-scores indicate a better satisfaction from the relationship with the doctor and a higher expected chance of recovery, respectively. An implicit assumption of the decomposed valuation method is that utility variations following improvements in one attribute do not depend on the levels of other quality attributes [12,13]. Article  A lower portion of patients (10.7%) felt that they had received “bad” or “very bad” treatment. O’Brien B, Gafni A. Accurately assessing consumer perceptions of prices is extremely important. Tobit regression analysis assumes that the dependent variable has a number of its values clustered at a limiting value, usually zero. sadikpavel@gmail.com. The degree of quality improvement was significantly associated with the stated WTP values. The quality of health care, as well as people’s preferences for health care, has changed in Bangladesh over the past 20 years.

A CV questionnaire was designed to assess consumers’ valuation of improving the quality of hospital services. A serial number was assigned to each patient before their consultation and patients were randomly chosen. Negative WTP indicates that when patients received “very bad” behavior from staff they were willing to pay a higher user fee (WTP = 9.36) but when patients received better behavior from the staff she/he was willing to pay a lower user fee (negative value). Finally, patients were willing to pay for drugs to be available. The authors declare that they have no competing interests. E-mail address: dila.ikiz@wsu.edu.

The objectives of this study Moreover, patients living in rural areas expressed a positive willing to pay for waiting time (0.96 BDT) and same health professional (0.90 BDT). As a divisional city, people from surrounding areas also received health care in Sylhet. The willingness to pay (WTP) for the construction of bathrooms with a flush toilet was assessed in households in a rural community in northern Vietnam. Mark TL, Swait J. The results also indicate that more educated patients have a positive effect on those three attributes and patients with higher income levels are willing to pay more. The study was funded by the Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Sylhet, Bangladesh. The contingent valuation method, an economic survey technique, was used. In marginal effects for Staff Attitudes, patients feeling they were treated “very badly” were willing to pay more than that of a patients feeling they are treated “excellent” by the staff of the hospital. We also examined the effects of socio-economic factors on the WTP. Moreover, higher educated patients expressed a positive willing to pay for geographical proximity (0.31 BDT), waiting time (0.54 BDT), staff attitude (0.03 BDT) and seeing the same health professional (0.16 BDT). 4, No. A FRAMEWORK FOR ASSESSING THE WILLINGNESS TO PAY IN REDUCING PLASTIC BAG USE @inproceedings{Sanglimsuwan2012AFF, title={A FRAMEWORK FOR ASSESSING THE WILLINGNESS TO PAY IN REDUCING PLASTIC BAG USE}, author={Karnjana Sanglimsuwan and Suthathip Suanmali and Threeranuch Nuchphithak and Anont Preechawan and Wasin Navacharoen}, year={2012} } However, the practical implications of this paper will give readers an opportunity to observe real patients’ behaviours using different attributes separately and to compare their satisfaction between sectors (public/NGO run centres versus private sector). SC contributed to the design of the study, analysis and interpretation of data, manuscript revision. Females were willing to pay more than males for higher doctor patient relationship and chance of recovery, indicating a less elastic demand for women but the sex variable was significant only for the chance of recovery score at the 10% level. 5, 2019, pp. Sayan Chakrabarty. Willingness to pay (WTP) is the maximum amount a customer is willing to pay for your product or service. Appl Econ. Among seven quality attributes, consumers were willing to pay more to improve three quality attributes viz. Data were collected in 2011 via face to face interviews in Sylhet, a major city in north-eastern Bangladesh. Indeed, patients waiting “very long”, “long”, “average” and “not long” before meeting the doctor were willing to pay 31%, 28%, 18% and 6% respectively greater than that of a patient waiting “not long at all”.

Finally, the probability that patients coming to the hospital for an acute or common illness were willing to pay less than those who come to the hospital due to other reasons to benefit from improvements in: geographical proximity (−5%), seeing the same health professional (−4%), doctor-patient relationship (−3%), drug availability (−3%) and chance of recovery (−2%) attributes. Further research is needed to verify the existence of such inter-attribute dependence. 0000053955 00000 n One of the assumptions in this study is the inter-attribute independence, i.e. In marginal effects for geographical proximity, results suggest that the probability that a patient living “very far” from a hospital would be willing to pay in order to have a “very close” hospital, was 39% greater than that of a patient living “very close” or “close” to a hospital, and this result was significant at the 1% level. 0000010934 00000 n Patients were randomly selected amongst patients seeking care in three: MAG Osmani Medical College Hospital, Jalalabad Ragib-Rabeya Medical College & Hospital and Women’s Medical College & Hospital. The results of this study will be useful for Government and private sector providers in allocating their funds in health care and setting appropriate user fees. Patients receiving health care from private hospitals expressed a positive willing to pay for geographical proximity (−1.18 BDT), waiting time (−7.24 BDT) (significant at the 5% level), staff attitude (−5.23 BDT) (significant at the 5% level), seeing the same health professional (−6.80 BDT) (significant at the 5% level), and drug availability (−10.21 BDT).

Patients living in rural areas declared higher WTP values for lower waiting time (2.15) and able to meet the same health professional (2.09). Higher income earners were willing to pay more than lower income earners to benefit from improvements over all seven quality attributes: geographical proximity (0.00001), waiting time (0.0002), staff attitude (0.0002), see the same health professional (0.0008; p < 0.01), doctor-patient relationship (0.002; p < 0.01), drug availability (0.002; p < 0.01) and chance of recovery (0.002; p < 0.01). 2009;18:951–76. Patients waiting “long”, “average”, and “not long” before meeting the doctor were willing to pay more 18.60, 12.32 and 3.47 BDT respectively, to improve the attribute to “not long at all”. Patients were willing to pay less than 0.002 for DPRSC (significant at the 5% level) and 0.007 for Chance of Recovery (significant at the 1% level). Moreover, the patients expressed negative willing to pay −6.2% for DPRSC (significant at the 5% level) and −1.67 for Chance of Recovery (significant at the 1% level). To enable this to occur a CV questionnaire was designed to assess the value of improving quality of hospital’s health care from the patients’ perspective. In the local context, females usually have less control over household resources, which may explain their lower stated WTP values.
