Abstract

Administrators are currently being challenged to maintain high quality patient care in the face of shrinking health care resources. The introduction of different skill mix ratios has been suggested as one way to help manage health care costs. This paper briefly reviews the literature and research data on skill mix, discussing the relevant issues and identifying the positive and negative implications of this approach. It concludes with suggestions for further research.
