How Much is Too Much? Value for Money in Health Spending

Buy Article:

$24.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

This chapter starts with a look at recent trends ‐ focusing on the last decade and a half ‐ in health spending and its components. The main drivers behind health expenditure growth are then discussed and, on the basis of this, possible future spending pressure. The chapter then presents a brief assessment of the current macroeconomic situation facing OECD countries, drawing on the latest projections of countries' fiscal positions and concludes with a discussion of recent evidence on the degree of system inefficiency, suggesting that there is scope for addressing sustainability, financial or economic, by improving the efficiency of resource use to that of the best performers.
