New report creates cost transparency in healthcare sector

The “Expenditure trends in healthcare” report takes a look at the development of costs in the healthcare sector and creates improved cost transparency.

Healthcare expenditure is consistently rising every year and is an oft-discussed topic. Helsana's 2016 report on “Expenditure trends in healthcare” takes a look at this topic and presents a selection of facts and figures for total expenditure and for specific benefits areas.

The analysis confirms that the main driver of cost increases apart from population growth is more intensive and a larger number of patient treatments and the expansion of the benefits catalogue.

The report is based on the benefits data of some 1.2 million insured of the Helsana Group for the years 2012 to 2015 as well as on statistics available to the public.

The report is drawn up in the national languages German, French and Italian.
