Market competition in European hospital care, Bernd Rechel, Stephen Wright, Nigel Edwards, Barrie Dowdeswell and Martin McKee, Investing in hospitals of the future, Copenhagen, Denmark, World Health Organisation, 2009, 103-122, Hans Maarse and Charles Normand
This chapter investigates some elements of market competition in European
hospital care. We use the term market competition as a broad concept, covering
a diverse and hard to demarcate range of changes or reforms, such as the growth
of the profi t-making market, the rise of private entrants in hospital care, or
the introduction of new models for hospital funding that seek better to relate
payment to performance.
