What can Europeans learn from Americans?

Enthoven AC - Health Care Financ Rev (1989)

Bottom Line: In a wide-ranging look at many aspects of health care financing and delivery, the concepts of glasnost and perestroika are used as a framework for presenting ideas from the American system that may have value for European health care planners.These include more uniform approaches to data collection and cost reporting, patient outcome studies, evaluation of service and access standards, publication of information, quality assurance review, decentralization and independent institutions, prepaid group practice, demonstrations and experiments, and managed competition.Suggestions are offered for making health care systems on both sides of the Atlantic more manageable, efficient, and responsive.

f4-hcfr-89-supp-049: Alternative cost-containment strategies in health care

Mentions: In Figure 2, a compact summary of the various approaches used in modern economies to control the allocation of GNP to health care providers is shown. This control may be sought on either the supply side or the demand side of the health care process, and it may be sought with either macro- or micromanagement of that process.
