Jones DB, Propper C, Smith S, 2017, Wolves in sheep's clothing: Is non-profit status used to signal quality?, J Health Econ, Vol: 55, Pages: 108-120

Why do many firms in the healthcare sector adopt non-profit status? One argument is that non-profit status serves as a signal of quality when consumers are not well informed. A testable implication is that an increase in consumer information may lead to a reduction in the number of non-profits in a market. We test this idea empirically by exploiting an exogenous increase in consumer information in the US nursing home industry. We find that the information shock led to a reduction in the share of non-profit homes, driven by a combination of home closure and sector switching. The lowest quality non-profits were the most likely to exit. Our results have important implications for the effects of reforms to increase consumer provision in a number of public services.

Burgess S, Propper C, Tominey E, 2016, Incentives in the Public Sector: Evidence from a GovernmentAgency, Economic Journal, ISSN: 1468-0297

We study the impact of team-based performance pay in a major UK government agency, thepublic employment service. The scheme covered quantity and quality targets, measured withvarying degrees of precision. We use unique data from the agency’s performancemanagement system and personnel records, linked to local labour market data. We show thaton average the scheme had no significant effect but had a substantial positive effect in smallteams, fitting an explanation combining free riding and peer monitoring. We also show thatthe impact was greater on better-measured quantity outcomes than quality outcomes. Thescheme was very cost effective in small offices.

Propper C, Leckie G, 2012, Increasing Competition Between Providers in Health Care Markets: The Economic Evidence, The Oxford Handbook of Health Economics, ISBN: 9780191743719

© Oxford University Press 2011. All rights reserved. This article scrutinizes the empirical literature on competition between providers and finds that the outcomes are highly varied, and that competition generates winners and losers among patients as well as providers. It examines the theoretical and empirical economic evidence on the effect of greater competition between providers in health care markets. Most of the evidence focuses on a narrow set of outcomes, primarily the effect of competition on prices and quality of health care, sometimes with a focus on winners and losers. It discusses the impact of centrally fixed prices on competition and examines the role of information in increasing competition is also discussed. It examines the effects of using centrally set prices. This article concludes raising some issues that seem to be pertinent for policymakers interested in increasing competition in their health care systems.
