Title: Impact of Quality of Healthcare Delivery on Healthcare Costs
Project ID: gDtCs22
Domain(s): Economics and Cost Analysis,Healthcare and Life Sciences


The impact of better healthcare quality on costs has not been substantially demonstrated. Though it may be a reasonable assumption to expect costs to decrease as quality of care improves there has not been global evidence of it. This project will explore the circumstances under which quality improvements can be associated (or not) with decreased costs. Associations of quality and cost may be more targeted and occur for selected conditions and illnesses and when certain conditions are met. What are those characteristics? How long does it take before costs decrease after quality improves?
