Healthcare Financing Sources in Central Europe
Abstract: Purpose: The objective of the paper is to review historical developments and the current setup of healthcare financing models in Central Europe. Methodology: A systematic narrative approach has been taken with the research emphasis on a critical literature review and analyses of healthcare spending statistical data. Findings: A comparison between different models currently in place seems to suggest the existence of patterns leading to improved quality of the healthcare service proposition that is critically impacted by a financing model. Implications: The findings have practical implications since different results have been achieved in countries choosing different models but starting from practically the same point. That realisation should serve as a foundation for further work on this subject, potentially leading to adjustments to financing models chosen by some countries. Value: The paper offers a comparative analysis of the healthcare system financing evolution in four Central European Countries and an overview of their current state.
