Abstract : This paper has attempted to raise questions about the range of alternative cost incentive systems and the information needed to develop them. Where possible, the ways research can make a contribution to the development of reimbursement policies have been illustrated with concrete examples. It is hoped that in the future much current speculation can be resolved through processes firmly grounded in research. (Author)
