Abstract

This paper is an updated, follow-up version of our previous work by accommodating time series analysis. We investigated the trends in health care finance that was recently affected by three, i.e., integration, separation, and financial reforms. Using the OECD Health Data 2008, we compared the performance outcomes of OECD countries longitudinally. We found that total expenditures on health relative to the gross domestic product (THE/GDP) rose over the whole years (1980-2006), particularly having increased sharply after the three health care reforms in 2000. The time series analysis revealed that statistically significant increasing trends in the ratios of THE/GDP, GS/THE, SSS/THE, PHE/THE, and PI/THE at10%, 5% and 1%, respectively. Meanwhile, the percentage change of the OOP/THE was on the way of decreasing trend at 1% level of significance. (The rest omitted)
