Patient-perceived health utility : Does primary care net cost affect the self-rated health needs of the population. (English)
Abstract [sv]

För att primärvården ska kunna utvecklas är det viktigt att den har patienternas förtroende. Därför är det av stor betydelse att undersöka vad som påverkar om befolkningen känner att de har möjligheten att få den vård de behöver. Denna uppsats undersöker hur två faktorer påverkar andelen invånare som anser sig ha tillgång till den vård de behöver. De två faktorerna är primärvårdens nettokostnader, samt hur stor andel av dessa kostnader som kan hänföras till köpt vård från privata företag. Dessa samband undersöks genom att flera modeller formuleras. För att modellerna skall kunna skattas används paneldata över Sveriges landsting samt åren 2005 t.o.m. 2012. Modellerna skattas med ordinarie minsta kvadratmetoden. Studien kan inte fastställa något samband mellan de två undersökta variablerna och andelen invånare som anser sig ha tillgång till den vård de behöver. Däremot verkar det finnas ett samband mellan vårdval i primärvården och andelen invånare som anser sig ha tillgång till den vård de behöver.

Abstract [en]

In order to develop it is important for primary care to have the patients trust. Therefore, it is of great importance to investigate what influences if the population feel they have access to the health care they need. This paper examines the influence of two factors on the proportion of residents who feel they have access to the health care they need. The two factors are net cost of primary health care and the proportion of these costs that can be assigned to purchases of care from private companies. These relationships are examined by serval formulated models. To estimate the models, panel data of Swedish County Councils and the years 2005 to 2012 are used. The models are estimated with ordinary least squares method. The study cannot find a link between the two examined variables and the percentage of residents who feel they have access to the care they need. However, it seems to be a correlation between free choice of primary health care and the percentage of residents who feel they have access to the care they need.
