A snapshot of the AWBZ: an analysis of its strengths and weaknesses
Gemoderniseerde AWBZ is meer klantgericht, maar doelmatigheid kan groter
The modernised AWBZ is described and the incentives of the different actors in the AWBZ are analysed. Using this information, the feasibility of reaching the policy goals with the current incentives is analysed. The modernisation has strengthened the position of the patients and efficiency has been improved. However, controlling the development of the macro-economic costs became more difficult. And the incentives for efficiency and quality of care are still not sufficient. Possible ways to improve the organisation of the AWBZ are cursorily explored. For an exhaustive analysis further research is needed.
