Example text

This will be determined by relative wage rates and the extent to which workers with given sets of skills can undertake the tasks required. Though working in teams is necessary in many health care contexts, there is little empirical literature on the role and nature of teams in influencing health outcomes and costs. Skills may complement each other in undertaking a specific task, or different health workers may be substitutes if they can undertake a specific task but are paid differently. Incentives to change skill mix depend on the extent to which employers have a fixed budget, which is not always the case in the public sector or where defined professional boundaries limit role change.

The first two focused on nonfinancial incentives; the third considered financial incentives as well. In Tanzania, Munga and Mbilinyi (2008) found that nonfinancial incentives have the potential to significantly affect health workers’ willingness to stay in their posts but that ineffective implementation of such incentives limits their practical impact. Examples included the lack of transparency in allocating promotions and training opportunities, and the inadequate provision of benefits, such as stipulated housing entitlements.

The second is the cross-price elasticity of demand between inputs. This is a measure of the extent to which different inputs are substitutes or complements. If wages of doctors rise, this influences not only the number of doctors demanded but can also influence the number of nurses and equipment demanded, if doctors and nurses are substitutes or complements. There are, however, no empirical estimates of these elasticities in health care. To achieve optimal skill mix within an organization, strong incentives are needed to minimize costs, or to maximize the benefits of skill mix change.
