Money Follows the Patient – Policy Paper on Hospital Financing

Policy Paper on Hospital Financing

Policy Paper on Hospital Financing

These proposals represent an important first step in the process to transform the healthcare funding system so that it is truly patient-centred, value-focused and, thus, supportive of wider health sector objectives. The proposals focus on public treatment in public hospitals. However, they will be complemented by further policy development on a new charging regime for private patients in public hospitals. They will also be continually developed so that the funding system evolves to support integrated care across different settings, i.e. so that money can always follow the patient to the most appropriate care setting.
