Economic Evaluation of Health Programs – Health Expenditures in the European Union


Health Care is a sensitive issue that concerns not only the individual but also society in general. Health economics are a specialization of the economists in the health sector who aim for the proper function of hospital administration. It deals with issues related to the financing and delivery of health services and the role of such services and other personal decisions in contributing to personal health. Many researches refer to the problems that each health unit faces, emphasizing on the resources, programs and health expenditure. Some of these programs, especially the most effective, are mentioned in this research. Their creation was based on the best quality of health services in all OECD countries.

With this research, we aim to develop a methodological framework for evaluating the total health expenditure (consists of all expenditures or outlays for medical care, prevention, promotion, rehabilitation, community health activities, health administration and regulation and capital formation with the predominant objective of improving health) in the 23 OECD countries, by creating a panel data regression and analyzing the results, from 2000 to 2014. For this reason, some of the most important variables (macroeconomic and related to the health sector), were used as tools to assess the performance of each country, as far as the resources and the expenditure for the health care are concerned. Every explanatory variable that was used in this sample, but also the combination of a number of these explanatory variables showed a positive correlation with total expenditures as a percentage of GDP in the majority of the equations. Some variables showed a negative correlation with total health expenditures, which doesn’t fit with the economic theory. Financial crisis is the reason for this.

Innovative Model of Management and University Quality through Results Indicators; the KPI’s Cross Impact Matrix of the Universidad Bernardo O’Higgins


Currently, higher education faces the great challenge of promoting the enduring improvement of its actions, and thus achieve not only satisfaction and integral formation of its students, but also a permanent growth and institutional development. At the World Conference of Higher Education, CMES 2009, the subject of quality and university management was emphasized, understanding that both favor the decision-making that directly benefits the continuous progress by incorporating mechanisms and instruments that ensure quality, such as: the hiring of qualified personnel, the optimization of resources and the accomplishment of institutional goals.

The Universidad Bernardo O’Higgins has defined and specified in its 2016-2020 institutional strategic plan, strategic objectives and indicators that show their degree of effectiveness through a Balanced Scorecard System. For this, it was necessary to select and specify indicators of relevant performance (KPIs) which would allow to execute a more specific follow up to overall performance and results. By using a similar methodology to the Dupon analysis a crossed-impact matrix was designed, which classified the 31 identified indicators in 4 KPIs of general matrix performance that allowed to systematically evaluate the institution and assess its integral overall performance by looking at only 4 indicators referring to the degree of advancement and institutional quality.

Thus, achieving the study’s goal by designing and implementing a modern management model sustained in key indicators that might influence the institutional quality, measured through the institutional and careers accreditation and the correlation analysis between years and accreditation areas and the selected indicators.
