Healthcare from the Economic Perspective

The book Healthcare from the Economic Perspective presents the results of two years’ work by an extended team of economists who collaborated on a project to analyze the Croatian health system. The project was initiated by the monthly magazine Banka, which partnered the Institute of Economics, Zagreb in organizing six public round table seminars on the subject in 2012. The research results of the economists who took part in the public discussions are presented in this book. They will be of use to professionals in healthcare and related disciplines, as well as the general public. They will promote a better understanding of the economic considerations pertinent to healthcare funding, health insurance, healthcare costs, questions of healthcare effectiveness, the quality level of healthcare services as influenced by the end-user’s perception of them, as well as the importance of economic evaluations in healthcare decision-making. These research results represent a small, but, we hope, worthwhile attempt at a greater understanding of healthcare from the economic perspective. Download book
