Pitfalls and possibilites: Choice and competition in public healthcare

Since the heydays of New Public Management, public healthcare systems have tried market mechanisms to boost quality and productivity. Citizen choice - a central part of the upcoming reform in Finland - is the latest example. What can be learnt from other countries?

In this highly current guest lecture, we will learn about valuable insights that could be applied to Finland's upcoming SOTE-reform (Health, Social Services and Regional Government Reform). Professor Brommel's presentation aims to answer the following questions and many more.

  • What do we know about the upcoming SOTE-reform? Will the reform create value for the Finnish society?
  • What is Citizens' choice?
  • What can we learn from the Sweden's healthcare reform? Pitfalls and opportunities in introducing Choice and Competition?

Mats Brommels has chaired the work group that has assessed the possibilities of implementing customer's Freedom to Choose in conjunction with the Reform. The work group was contracted by the Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health.
