    摘要: 目的:探討健保住院安寧支付制度下之安寧收益及其影響因素。
    Objectives: No empirical study to date has investigated the income benefits of Taiwan NHI Pilot Project pricing of Taiwan NHI for Inpatient Hospice Services and its relations with patient and hospital characteristics. This study employed a hierarchical linear modeling (HLM) to explore the importance of both patient-level and hospital-level attributes in determining income benefit of Inpatient Hospice Services under the Taiwan NHI Pilot Project pricing system.
    Methods: The hospice admission of the administrative claims data of beneficiaries in Taiwan from 2004 and 2006 were used. The income benefits for Inpatient Hospice Service (income benefits) were measured as the differences between hospice benefits and medical expenses. Data analysis was undertaken using descriptive statistics and HLM.
    Results: We found that 90.6 percent hospice services with a positive income benefit in 2006, compared to the previous year, 2004's figure was 2.4 percent lower. As to hospital's mean income benefit more than 20,000 RVU (relative value unit), there were 50 percent hospitals in calendar year 2004 and up to 76.7 percent in 2006. Results of HLM demonstrated that hospitals' income benefits were different across hospitals significantly. The income benefits were associated with characteristics on both the patient-level including length of stay, type of cancer and the hospital-level including accreditation level, the interaction of hospital's mean length of stay and patient's length of stay. The income benefits were positively related to length of stay; whereas the patients' length of stay aggregated the hospital level diminished the relationship between income benefit and length of stay. The models also indicated that the income benefits of oral cancer were lower than other cancers, and the income benefits of medical centers were lower than community hospitals when inpatient hospice services were priced equally among overall hospitals in 2006. Conclusions: Empirical results show that length of stay is associated with income benefits and its relations are confounded by hospitals' aggregated length of stay. The income benefits are significant differences among types of cancer and across hospitals. Implications for research in homogeneous Pilot Project pricing system of Taiwan NHI are considered.
