OECD Reviews of Health Systems/Examens de l'OCDE des systèmes de santé Switzerland: Chapter 4. The Performance of the Swiss Health System: Efficiency and Financial Sustainability
Abstract:This chapter first examines factors underlying the rapid increase in spending and possible future trends if current arrangements for supply, demand and governance remain unchanged. Section 4.1 also examines some of the reasons for the relatively high level of health spending in Switzerland. Identifying these factors may suggest areas where efficiency gains and improved value for money could be achieved (Section 4.2). These could help offset the impact of rising demand for health on the costs of the health system.
