Williams' Schematic of Health Economics

Definition

Health Economics

  • A fairly comprehensive taxonomizing framework that systematically embraces the various topics studied by health economists. Its form is as in the accompanying 'plumbing diagram'. The letter labels for each box in the schematic indicate the (approximate) order in which things flow, with various feedbacks etc. indicated by the arrows. Adapted from Williams (2003).
