Of particular interest is the information on whether a hospital has any expensive or dangerous medical devices, including, a computerized tomography (CT) scanner, radiation isotope therapeutic equipment, radiation isotope diagnostic equipment, linear acceleration equipment, NMR tomography, and shock wave lithotripsy equipment.
The difference-in-differences estimates of the effect of NHI reform on technology ownership are positive and statistically significant, except the one for NMR tomography. Moreover, the marginal effects (estimated at the mean of the independent variables) suggest that NHI increased the probability of owning CT scanners by 11%, radiation isotope diagnostic equipment by 9.8%, linear acceleration equipment by 0.9%, NMR tomography by 1.0%, and shock wave lithotripsy equipment by 3.1%.
In contrast, the estimated effects on use of linear acceleration equipment, NMR tomography, and shock wave lithotripsy equipment were each less than 1%.
