This subject examines how alternative payment models create incentives to deliver equitable, effective and efficient health care. The subject covers a wide range of alternative payment models including activity-based funding, fee-for-service, capitation, bundled payments and pay-for-performance. Students develop skills to critically appraise the existing evidence on payment systems reforms focusing on the incentives that drive the behaviours of patients, providers and institutions and explore the incentives embedded in different systems. The subject draws on current and emerging policy challenges in Australia and internationally, to illustrate each of the topics.
