Bariers of economic reform in health care


The present economic and financial system of health care was subject to a general discussion which resulted in agreement as to the necessity of introducting the economic reform also into that sphere. However, despite a wide range of discussion and in spite of relatively deep engagement of the State authorities into the economic and financial reform of health care, the extent of changes which have already been implemented is still very small. It made the author consider the barriers the economic reform meets in that sphere. The following barriers in health care have been distinguished and analysed: political, balance, psychological and conceptual. A political barrier is expressed in a lack of a wider and more concrete shape of future reformed socio-economic system, a background for health case system. A balance barrier is expressed in terms of disproportions between economic potential of the country and social expectations (resulting from health threats and health consciousness and aspirations) with respect to the health care standard offered by a new, reformed financial and economic system of health care. A psychological barrier can be seen in anxieties or even fears — a more advanced economic reform in health care brings about, the fears expressed at the same time by potential patients, health care staff and authorities responsible for the functioning of the health care system. Finally, a conceptual barrier is expressed in the absence of a comprehensive, consistent and acceptable conception of a new, reformed health care system and its management.
