Drawing on experiences in Northern Europe and the United States, this text examines the key concepts behind the present push toward health reform in the industrialized world: contracting and solidity; contestable versus competitive markets; the role of vouchers; and physicians' clinical autonomy. The book includes case studies of planned market approaches based on contracts, patient choice and quality of care. It concludes with a broad comparative assessment of the main themes and points towards the most likely developments in future "planned market" models of health care.
