Explaining Waiting Times Variations for Elective Surgery across OECD Countries

Luigi Siciliani, Jeremy Hurst
OECD Health Working Papers No. 7, OECD, October 2003

There is a clear negative association between waiting times and capacity, either measured in terms of number of beds or number of practising physicians. Analogously, a higher level of health spending is also systematically associated with lower waiting times. Also, evidence from this and other studies suggests that fee-for-service remuneration for specialists, as opposed to salaried remuneration, is negatively associated with the presence of waiting times.
