Thursday 29 March 2012, 2.00PM to 3.15pm
Speaker(s): Luca Lorenzoni, Health Accounts, Asian Health and Social Policy Outreach, Health Division, OECD, France
Abstract: My talk will focus on the issue of comparing health care expenditure across countries from an International organisation perspective. Firstly, I will describe the System of Health Accounts 2011 standard, in particular with regard to the suggested health products classifications. Secondly, I will comment on the challenge of deriving comparable and representative health prices – in particular in the non-market sector - for spatial and temporal price/volume breakdown. Thirdly, I will discuss the outstanding issue of quality change adjustment. Finally, I will report on the preliminary results of the current work at OECD on comparing hospital price levels across countries.
