Five Types of OECD Health Care Systems

In collaboration with a working group at the Collaborative Research Center 597 Transformations of the State we have also developed a new classification of health care systems for which you can find the empirical data in the country chapters of our health system wiki. A full description of the theoretical background, the deductive derivation of health care system types and a discussion of empirical cases is published in a working paper by Böhm et al. (2010): Classifying OECD Healthcare Systems: A Deductive Approach.
