Reforming payment for health care in Europe to achieve better value – Nuffield Trust – 23 August 2012

“This Nuffield Trust report, supported by KPMG, compares different payment systems for health care used across Europe and examines their role in improving the efficiency and quality of care.

The authors conclude that, while payment systems are an important tool for policy-makers, they should be seen as part of a basket of measures for maximising efficiency and effectiveness that also includes professional culture, public attitudes, and the legal and regulatory framework. Therefore, changes to payment systems need to be part of a wider programme of reform.”
