Jencks SF, Schieber GJ - Health Care Financ Rev (1992)

Bottom Line: In this article, the authors provide an overview of the problem of health care cost containment.Further, the authors define cost containment, provide a framework for describing cost-containment strategies, and describe the major cost-containment strategies.Finally, the role of research in choosing such a strategy for the United States is examined.

ABSTRACT
In this article, the authors provide an overview of the problem of health care cost containment. Both the growth of health care spending and its underlying causes are discussed. Further, the authors define cost containment, provide a framework for describing cost-containment strategies, and describe the major cost-containment strategies. Finally, the role of research in choosing such a strategy for the United States is examined.

f1-hcfr-91-supp-001: Relative growth index in nominal health expenditures: United States, 1970-90 (semi-logarithmic scale)

Mentions: Figure 1 shows the rate of growth of GDP, total health expenditures, and the major components of those expenditures from 1970 to 1990. A cumulative growth index is created by dividing each year's expenditure by the 1970 base-year expenditure level. By plotting these cumulative indexes on a semilogarithmic scale, the slope from year to year represents the annual rate of growth.
