Robots and Labor in the Service Sector: Evidence from Nursing Homes

Karen Eggleston, Yong Suk Lee, Toshiaki Iizuka
Asia Health Policy Program working paper # 63, 2021 February 16, 2021

In one of the first studies of service sector robotics using establishment-level data, we study the relationship between robots and staffing in Japanese nursing homes. We utilize variation in robot subsidies across prefectures as an instrumental variable to explore the impact of robot adoption on nursing homes’ staffing decisions. We find that robot adoption appears to decrease difficulty in staff retention and to increase employment by augmenting the number of care workers and nurses on flexible employment contracts.

Asia Health Policy Program working paper # 62, 2021 February 16, 2021

Health systems globally face increasing morbidity and mortality from chronic diseases, yet many - especially in low- and middle-income countries - lack strong chronic disease management in primary health care (PHC). We provide evidence on China’s efforts to promote PHC management using unique five-year panel data in a rural county, including health care utilization from medical claims and health outcomes from biomarkers.

Future Projection of the Health and Functional Status of Older People in Japan: A Multistate Transition Microsimulation Model with Repeated Cross‐sectional Data

Megumi Kasajima, Hideki Hashimoto, Sze‐Chuan Suen, Brian Chen, Hawre Jalal, Karen Eggleston, Jay Bhattacharya
Health Economics, 2020 July 14, 2020

Accurate future projections of population health are imperative to plan for the future healthcare needs of a rapidly aging population. Multistate‐transition microsimulation models, such as the U.S. Future Elderly Model, address this need but require high‐quality panel data for calibration. We develop an alternative method that relaxes this data requirement, using repeated cross‐sectional representative surveys to estimate multistate‐transition contingency tables applied to Japan's population.

Healthy Aging in Asia

Karen Eggleston
2020 May 15, 2020
Life expectancy in Japan, South Korea, and much of urban China has now outpaced that of the United States and other high-income countries. With this triumph of longevity, however, comes a rise in the burden of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) like diabetes and hypertension, reducing healthy life years for individuals in these aging populations, as well as challenging the healthcare systems they rely on for appropriate care.  
 
The challenges and disparities are even more pressing in low- and middle-income economies, such as rural China and India.

Smoking, Life Expectancy, and Chronic Disease in South Korea, Singapore, and the United States: A Microsimulation Model

Health Economics, 2019 November 3, 2019

The substantial social and economic burden attributable to smoking is well‐known, with heavy smokers at higher risk of chronic disease and premature mortality than light smokers and nonsmokers. In aging societies with high rates of male smoking such as in East Asia, smoking is a leading preventable risk factor for extending lives (including work‐lives) and healthy aging.

Healing One-Fifth of Humanity: Progress and Challenges for China's Health System

Karen Eggleston,
Milken Institute Review, 2019 October 28, 2019

In the 2019 fourth quarter edition of the Milken Institute Review, Asia Health Policy Program director Karen Eggleston discusses the progress China has made since the 2009 reforms to its healthcare, which brought basic coverage to all and reduced patients' share of costs, and explains the many challenges that remain, including increasing the system's efficiency to ensure its sustainability and addressing the disparities in healthcare that echo the "yawning gap in living standards between China's rising middle class and its poorest citizens."
