Abstract

Managed care is a strategy for organizing the delivery of health-care services. It comprises a set of management tools, many of which draw on public health concepts. Managed care has a long history in the United States, and is increasingly becoming an element in European health-care systems, as well as in middle-income and developing countries. Most studies find that managed care tools can reduce costs, but the effects of managed care on quality are less clear.
