Health Care Analysis

Commissioned by: MZB d.o.o., publisher of monthly magazine Banka
Project duration: February – October, 2012
Project manager: Maja Vehovec, PhD

Brief outline: 
The project Health Care Analysis covered eight topics related to the health care system in Croatia: health care expenditure in view of the recent health care reform, Croatian position in the European Health Consumer Index, pharmaceutical expenditure, primary health care organization and financing, experience and possibilities of public-private partnership in the health care system, corruption in health care, private health care expenses, and challenges of restructuring public hospitals. All topics were presented at public roundtables. The monthly magazine Banka was the main organizer responsible for media coverage and coordination of stakeholders. The public roundtables showed that economic analysis of the health care sector in Croatia required additional research and efforts in improving the quality of data bases in the health care sector.
