Variations in Practice

Definition

Health Economics

  • There are marked international and within national variations in outcomes that are frequently attributed to the various financial incentives that characterize different health care systems, the exercise of clinical 'freedom' and the absence of, or failure to follow, best practice guidelines. There are many practical difficulties, however, in establishing the presence or absence of quality variation.
