Purposes and Principles of Health Accounts
Abstract:A System of Health Accounts 2011 reflects a desire to make health accounts more adaptable to rapidly evolving health systems around the world by further enhancing the cross‐country comparability of health expenditure and financing data and thereby increasing the information base for its analytical use. Moreover, it is hoped that the new version of the SHA will make it more useful as a tool in the assessment and monitoring of health systems and in the analysis of the importance of health expenditures from a consumption perspective in the economy as a whole.
