Stadhouders, N., Kruse, F., Tanke, M., Koolman, X., & Jeurissen, P. (2019). Effective healthcare cost-containment policies: A systematic review. Health Policy (Amsterdam, Netherlands), 123(1), 71–79. This article shows that unsustainable growth in healthcare expenditure demands effective cost-containment policies. This article includes all OECD member states from 1970 onward. After a rigorous quality appraisal, the studies. policies most often evaluated were payment reforms (10 studies), managed care (8 studies) and cost sharing (6 studies). Despite the importance of this topic, for many widely-used policies very limited evidence is available on their effectiveness in containing healthcare costs.
