Performance, Incentives and Competition in Health Care

Coordinator: Christian Kronborg 

The organisation and regulation of a health care system implies a number of financial as well as non-financial incentives, which affect the behaviour of hospitals and health care providers. It is the aim of this research programme to accumulate knowledge within this area and to improve the understanding of how incentives and regulation influence behaviour and performance of health care organisations and health professionals.

In addition we study the influence of regulation on health care utilisation. This includes health insurance coverage, user charges and subsidies or reimbursement of health care and pharmaceutical expenditures.
