Abstract

In this introduction, the development tendencies that aid and impede managed care will first be discussed and subsequently, a definition framework developed. This framework will address in more detail the instruments and organisational forms, as well as the consequences that result. The so-called called “managed care backlash” that first manifested itself almost 20 years ago after a period of significant growth will also be addressed.
