Every European country has its own healthcare system with its own specific features. This publication is a survey of healthcare finance and reimbursement systems in 11 European countries. The book is the completely updated and revised second edition of Health Care in Europe 1997.
The introduction discusses the problems involved in analyzing and comparing healthcare systems and introduces current trends. Separate chapters describe the healthcare system in each of the 11 countries. Each chapter starts with a broad outline of the way the healthcare system operates, and this is followed by a discussion of the benefit package and co-payments, pharmaceutical regulation, primary care and hospital facilities. Each chapter concludes with a section on recent developments. Two general chapters compare the overall finance systems and reimbursement systems and professional and hospital payments in the countries described. The final chapter examines recent developments.
This book is of particular interest to people working in the healthcare sector – policymakers, healthcare providers, insurers, advisers, researchers, teachers, students, managers in the healthcare field, the pharmaceutical industry and others interested in healthcare systems in an international perspective.
