3 Presentation outline 1. Measuring health care spending efficiency 2. Reaping efficiency gains: why (effect on public spending) and how

4 1. Measuring health care efficiency: difficulties No obvious definition of health care outcomes and inputs; cross-country data on outcomes are imperfect A large variety of actors (hospitals, outpatient physicians, drug companies, etc.) and co-ordination matters a great deal Mix of public and private spending

5 1. Measuring health care efficiency: OECD approach Choose an outcome indicator and an input indicator Identify the other determinants Implement various approaches (panel regressions and DEA) and robustness checks Complement/compare the overall efficiency index with other performance indicators

23 2. Reaping efficiency gains -- Impact on public spending Main assumptions: Health outcomes improve as they did in the past Two scenarios on the spending side are compared: 1. No reform scenario spending increases as it did in the past 2. Reform scenario efficiency gains are realised to finance all or part of health status improvements Potential savings in public spending are large

24 Exploiting efficiency gains would allow to improve health outcomes further 6 Gains in life expectancy, years increase over Potential gains in 2007 through greater efficiency Source: OECD Health Data 2009; OECD calculations.

25 Exploiting efficiency gains would help to contain future spending % increase in per capita spending, in real terms , if exploiting efficiency gains Source: OECD Health Data 2009; OECD calculations.

26 Potential savings in public spending are large % 2017 GDP Source: OECD Health Data 2009; OECD calculations.

27 How to reap efficiency gains? A new set of policy indicators provides guidance France OECD average Group 2 Regulation of prices billed by providers User information on quality and prices Regulation of workforce & equipement Population covered Scope of basic coverage Depth of coverage Choice of insurer, basic coverage Regulation of prices paid by thirdparty payers 1 0 Insurer levers, basic coverage Volume incentives embedded in provider payment schemes -1-2 Over-the-basic coverage Degree of private provision Patient choice among providers Stringency of the budget constraint Gate-keeping Priority setting Price signals on users Consistency Delegation to insurers Degree of decentralisation

28 To conclude Indicators of health care spending efficiency at the system level can be built and are relatively robust They can be complemented by indicators of the quality of care and other performance indicators Exploiting potential efficiency gains would help contain public spending and result in large savings for some countries (on average 2% of GDP by 2017)
