SAMSI Transition Workshop

November 10, 2005


Acknowledgments
Acknowledgments States: An Analysis from the Political Economy Perspective

  • Dr. Kelly was supported in part by a postdoctoral fellowship1 in the Carolina Program in Health and Aging Research (CPHAR) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Nursing home regulation in the united states
Nursing Home Regulation in the United States States: An Analysis from the Political Economy Perspective

  • Under OBRA 87, states survey nursing homes, CMS oversees

  • State surveyors rate nursing home deficiencies according to scope and severity

  • Information is available to consumers on CMS’s Nursing Home Compare website


Research questions
Research Questions States: An Analysis from the Political Economy Perspective

  • What is the extent of nursing home regulatory activity in the 50 states?

  • How did extent change over a three-year period?

  • What factors predict citation volume & severity in the 50 states?

Linear mixed model
Linear Mixed Model States: An Analysis from the Political Economy Perspective

  • Used to identify predictors of the volume and severity of state citations

  • Provides estimation and hypothesis testing for modeling population and random effects

  • Can accommodate data missing completely at random


Linear mixed model is useful for studying state regulatory activity
Linear Mixed Model is Useful for Studying State Regulatory Activity

  • Longitudinal data (i.e. nursing home quality over several years)

  • Population data - 50 U.S. states.

    Large sample techniques are challenged.

  • Parsimonious model needed (N =50)

  • Random intercept and slope.

  • Within-subject errors assumed i.i.d.


Nursing home deficiencies stable but less severe
Nursing Home Deficiencies Stable, but Less Severe Activity

  • Number of deficiencies has remained level (about 6 per nursing home)

  • Percentage of severe deficiencies has declined (about 7% of all deficiencies cause actual harm)

  • States vary widely in volume & severity of deficiency citations


Possible predictors of the extent of state regulatory activity

External Determinants Activity

Urbanization

Education

Age

Political Culture

Internal Determinants

Nursing Home

State Surveying Agency

Legislature

Interest Groups

Governor

Possible Predictors of the Extent of State Regulatory Activity






Future use of the linear mixed model
Future Use of the Linear Mixed Model Activity

  • Repetitive Scheduling of Annual Inspections: States are to avoid inspecting a nursing home during the same month in consecutive years

  • Deficiency Resolution: States are to resolve non-actual harm deficiencies within 60 days and actual harm deficiencies within 30 days
