  • Considering the existence of asymmetric information between doctor and patient, the doctor's reimbursement method has been considered as a desirable policy device of improving efficiency of patient's use of medical care in terms of its affecting doctor's practice pattern by determining doctor's practice revenue. By using the Community Tracking Study (CTS) physician data set, which includes not only various information on doctors practice arrangements and sources of practice revenue, but also vignettes of various clinical presentations, this paper investigates doctor's reaction to the financial incentive under the control of patient's specific medical situation. Under the econometric model for exploring the effect of doctor's reimbursement method on his/her practice patterns; referring patients, recommend doctor-visit or medical tests, the Hausman's specification test was used for checking out the possibility of the doctor's reimbursement method being endogeneized explanatory variable. In the case where the endogeneity problem of doctor's reimbursement method exists, the 2SLS method was used for correcting that problem, and the multiple regression method was used in the case where the problem is found to be nonexistent. Based on the empirical results, this paper finds that doctors do appear to respond to financial incentive. The empirical results show that the doctor's reimbursement method statistically significantly affects doctor's practice pattern and are coincident with the theoretical result proposed by previous researches, This results suggest, as doctor's practice revenues are mainly determined by prospective method, such as capitation, doctors would more refer their patients to specialists, and hesitate in recommending doctor-visit or medical exam.

  • Recently there is a heated debate going on regarding the patient-doctor communication in the medical schools and medical service sector. Patient-doctor communication is an interactive communication made during the consultation session which is known to bring positive effect to both the patient and the doctor. Through this research, a doctor coaching model was developed by combining a method that would help the patient and doctor communicate better by increasing the doctor's communication skill and a coaching mechanism. Through the research, the doctor coaching model consists of 5 levels. First is the 'relationship creation' which would cause the doctor's interest and expectations toward coaching mechanism. Second is 'recognition of change' and this would cause to understand the problem and pros of the doctor's communication with the patient and set a direction regarding the coaching. Third is 'understanding the perspective' and this would lead the doctor to think from the patient's perspective. Fourth is 'increasing problem solving and communication skills' and this would set specific terms as to how the doctor can improve his communication skills. Fifth is 'goal setting and support' where goal regarding the improvements can be set and agreement regarding the ways to maintain and strengthen the advantage can be made. The developed doctor coaching model is most meaningful in a way that it has first adapted a coaching mechanism to improve patient-doctor communication. Also in cases where such will be utilized in the future medical service sector, it is expected to affect greatly the doctor's communication skill and patient sympathizing skills. Hereby it will contribute in increasing the patient's treatment satisfaction.

  • Due to the existence of asymmetry of information between doctor and patient, it has been believed that doctor might affect patient's decision making process of purchasing medical care. Based on this notion, doctor's reimbursement method has been suggested as an effective policy device of improving efficiency of patient's medical care use by way of its affecting doctor's practice pattern. By using the Community Tracking Study (CTS) household and physician data set, which includes not only various information on patient's medical care use, but doctor's practice arrangements and sources of practice revenue, this paper investigates the effect of community doctor's characteristics of reimbursement method on community patient's medical care use under the control of patient's socio-demographic characteristics and community doctor's practice type. In the process of estimating econometric model, the endogeneity problem of individual health insurance purchase was corrected by using 2818. And due to the existence of sample selection problem, Heckman's two-step estimation method was used for strengthen the robustness of estimation which was adversely affected by sample selection problem The empirical results show that as the average value of community doctor's portion of practice revenue determined by prospective method out of total revenue increases, the community patient's total out-of-pocket medical cost decreases. This results suggest, as doctor's practice revenues are mainly determined by prospective method, such as capitation, doctors would be more conscious about practice cost, which might affect doctor's practice pattern and by which his/her patient's use of medical care would decrease.

  • The doctor blade is a core part of a laser printer and directly influences the printing quality. The main specifications for doctor blades ate for them to be precise and durable. It is necessary to study an automatic production system for doctor blades in order to obtain high-efficient manufacturing processes. In this paper, the technology and the design of the automatic production line has for manufacturing doctor blades has been researched. The automated manufacturing process consists of five steps, which are the supplying of raw material, shearing, bending, bracket supplying, and the laser-spot welding process. The proposed automatic manufacturing system allowed for faster and more reliable production of doctor blades.
