Health expenditure trends in OECD countries, 1990-2001.

Huber M, Orosz E - Health Care Financ Rev (2003)

Bottom Line: This article presents data on health care spending for 30 OECD countries from OECD Health Data 2003, the latest edition of OECD's annual data collection on health systems across industrialized countries.OECD data show health care expenditures as a proportion of gross domestic product at an all-time high, due to both increased expenditures and overall economic slow-down.The article discusses similarities and differences across countries in how health care expenditures are funded and how the health care dollar is spent among types of services.

f4-hcfr-25-1-001: Excess Growth in Total Health Care Expenditures Per Capita: 1990-2000

Mentions: The phenomenon of excess growth prevalent in countries whose health care expenditures ratio was relatively low in 1990 (Figure 4), has led to some convergence of expenditure ratios. This figure plots the excess growth of health over GDP with the share of health care expenditures in 1990, the beginning of the time period studied in this graph. Countries at the lower end of the health care expenditures ratios tend to have higher excess growth rates, whereas several countries at the higher end of the scale had low or no excess growth in health care spending over the GDP (for example, Denmark and Canada). This pattern is not unambiguous: the three countries with high expenditure ratios in 1990 (Germany, Switzerland, and the U.S.) had relatively high excess growth of health.
