Presentation of Results, Tables and Basic Indicators
Abstract:Health expenditure is the object of measurement in health accounts. A country's health accounts (HA) provide the measurements for a given time period and present these in a set of tables in which various aspects of the nation's health expenditure are arrayed. The tables themselves are simply a means to display the financial flows related to a country's consumption of health care goods and services. The data contained are intended for use by analysts and national policy makers to assist in assessing and evaluating a country's health system. Reporting the data and estimates in a comparative way allows for evaluations between countries and is thus useful for international comparisons.
