This book reviews the basis of hospital funding in Australia. In addition to two background papers by the Commonwealth Treasury and Department of Health, and the Commonwealth Grants Commission, respectively, there are papers on Canada's system of hospital funding; on why Queensland's per capita hospital costs are so low and on why Western Australia's costs are so high, on factors affecting costs and efficiency in hospital administration; on hospital charges and revenue-raising capacity; on the likely future course of health funding; and on alternative methods of providing and financing hospital services, including greater reliance on the market in substitution for direct government provision. The authors include senior Treasury officers, hospital administrators and health economists.
