Neue Untersuchungs- und Behandlungsmethoden im stationären Sektor

Ex, Patricia (2018)

Die Finanzierung neuer Gesundheitstechnologien im stationären Sektor erfolgt oft über Entgelte für Neue Untersuchungs- und Behandlungsmethoden (NUB-Entgelte) als temporäres Erstattungsinstrument. Mehr als zehn Jahre nach ihrer Einführung gibt es kaum Studien über NUB-Entgelte und wie sie die Anwendung und Verbreitung von neuen Gesundheitstechnologien beeinflussen. Auch die Ergänzung einer Nutze...

Not just the what and how, but also the who: the impact of entrepreneurship educators

Steiner, Susanne (2014)

The profile of entrepreneurship educators is as unexplored as it is diverse. While many studies in entrepreneurship education (EE) look at students and their entrepreneurial learning process (e.g., Peterman and Kennedy, 2003; Fayolle et al., 2006; Pittaway and Cope, 2007; Müller, 2009), they have so far paid little attention to the profiles of educators. Educators’ profiles, however, might pla...

Entrepreneurship education in the age of effectuation: teaching strategies evidence from Mexico and Germany

Guerrero, Maribel ; Steiner, Susanne (2011)

The positive impact of Entrepreneurship on economic development has been supported by many research studies (Drucker 1985). Based on those, education and training have been confirmed as relevant factors in promoting and fostering an entrepreneurial perspective (Gibb 1994; Peterman and Kennedy 2003; Kuratko 2005; Pittaway and Cope 2007). Therefore, universities have increasingly incorporated ent...

Show me the money: the impact of funding on entrepreneurship education at German universities

Steiner, Susanne ; Kratzer, Jan ; Haase, Heiko (2013)

This article examines the current characteristics of Entrepreneurship Education (EE) at German universities. We first assess the degree of alignment between course objectives and corresponding contents on an individual course level. As a result, we find a low degree of alignment. In the second part of our analysis we show that the German universities in our sample predominantly use internal fun...

Resource orchestration as source of competitive advantage of cities

Berseck, Nadja (2018)

This doctoral dissertation responds to the call on the management community to refocus on real-world problems amid the current trend towards increasing urbanization. The first strategy scholar, who applied his model of competitive advantage of firms to nations, cities or places, was Michael Porter. Since then, scholars form other disciplines such as economics, economic geography, sociology and ...

Health care public reporting utilization

Pross, Christoph ; Averdunk, Lars-Henrik ; Stjepanovic, Josip ; Busse, Reinhard ; Geissler, Alexander (2017)

Quality of care public reporting provides structural, process and outcome information to facilitate hospital choice and strengthen quality competition. Yet, evidence indicates that patients rarely use this information in their decision-making, due to limited awareness of the data and complex and conflicting information. While there is enthusiasm among policy makers for public reporting, clinici...

Exploring the determinants of health and wellbeing in communities living in proximity to coal seam gas developments in regional Queensland

Mactaggart, Fiona ; McDermott, Liane ; Tynan, Anna ; Gericke, Christian A. (2017)

Background There is some concern that coal seam gas mining may affect health and wellbeing through changes in social determinants such as living and working conditions, local economy and the environment. The onward impact of these conditions on health and wellbeing is often not monitored to the same degree as direct environmental health impacts in the mining context, but merits attention. This...

Ethics and privacy issues of critical infrastructure protection – risks and possible solutions through standardization

Wurster, Simone (2014)

Recent studies propose a paradigm shift in standardization strategies and research and the use of ethical aspects as an additional factor to explain standardization success. This article goes one step further. It focuses on specific ethical and privacy standards and introduces privacy as a new dimension of the interplay between standards nd innovation in the fields of civil security and the pro...

The interplay of patents and standards for information and communication technologies

Pohlmann, Tim ; Blind, Knut (2014)

ICT products are often interdependent and in some cases indispensably work together. Firms may thus compete on different market levels pursuing different business models to sponsor their proprietary technologies and to maintain market share for their products and services. Interoperability of products is a crucial factor for market success and firms evermore have to coordinate and set standards...

Paying for hospital care: the experience with implementing activity-based funding in five European countries

O'Reilly, Jacqueline ; Busse, Reinhard ; Häkkinen, Unto ; Or, Zeynep ; Street, Andrew ; Wiley, Miriam (2012)

Following the US experience, activity-based funding has become the most common mechanism for reimbursing hospitals in Europe. Focusing on five European countries (England, Finland, France, Germany and Ireland), this paper reviews the motivation for introducing activity-based funding, together with the empirical evidence available to assess the impact of implementation. Despite differences in th...

Food standards and exports: evidence for China

Mangelsdorf, Axel ; Portugal-Perez, Alberto ; Wilson, John S. (2012)

Using a new database on standards in China, we estimate the impact of voluntary and mandatory standards – either harmonized to international norms or purely domestic – on Chinese food exports. The dataset covers seven Chinese products over the period 1992–2008. We find that standards have a positive effect on China's export performance, as the benefits to standardization in terms of reducing po...

Overcoming barriers to successfully commercializing carbon dioxide utilization

Kant, Marvin (2017)

The successful transition to a low-carbon economy hinges on innovative solutions and collaborative action on a global scale. Sustainable entrepreneurship is thereby recognized as a key driver in the creation and transformation of ecologically and socially sustainable economic systems. The purpose of this article is to contribute to this topic by understanding commercialization barriers for stro...

An alternative perspective on IP management

Potekhina, Anna (2017)

The intellectual property rights (IPR) appropriation from the company’s perspective is, first of all, associated with coordinated actions on obtaining and enforcing of the respective intellectual property rights, such as patents, utility models, industrial designs, trademarks, copyright and trade secrets. In developed economies with strong intellectual property (IP) systems companies traditiona...

Taxonomy of medical devices in the logic of health technology assessment

Henschke, Cornelia ; Panteli, Dimitra ; Perleth, Matthias ; Busse, Reinhard (2015)

Objectives: The suitability of general HTA methodology for medical devices is gaining interest as a topic of scientific discourse. Given the broad range of medical devices, there might be differences between groups of devices that impact both the necessity and the methods of their assessment. Our aim is to develop a taxonomy that provides researchers and policy makers with an orientation tool o...

Considering equity in health technology assessment: an exploratory analysis of agency practices

Panteli, Dimitra ; Kreis, Julia ; Busse, Reinhard (2015)

Objectives: Equity is one of the founding principles in most healthcare systems. Financial constraints entail an increased risk of exacerbating inequities and a greater need for evidence-based decisions. It is, therefore, both important and timely to enquire how equity can be addressed in health technology assessment (HTA) practice. We aimed to explore related practices from a broad range of HT...

How health technology assessment agencies address the issue of unpublished data

Kreis, Julia ; Panteli, Dimitra ; Busse, Reinhard (2014)

Objectives: Reporting bias potentially threatens the validity of results in health technology assessment (HTA) reports. Our study aimed to explore policies and practices of HTA agencies regarding strategies to include previously unpublished data in their assessments, focusing on requests to industry for unpublished data. Methods: We included international HTA agencies with publicly available me...
