Special Issue Information
Healthcare is one of the largest and fastest-growing sectors in many economies, and the quality and availability of health services has an outsized impact on quality of life. Healthcare financing and delivery arrangements vary greatly across countries, providing opportunities for researchers to study the strengths and weaknesses of various health systems and for policymakers to learn from these comparisons.
This Special Issue will cover a variety of topics related to the economics of healthcare and health insurance. Of particular interest are empirical articles evaluating the effect of changes in health policy and regulations, articles on the determinants of healthcare spending or quality, articles developing value-added measures of healthcare quality, and articles studying innovations in managing the financial risks of unexpected health shocks.
