Abstract

Adjudicative tribunals play an important role in the health sector yet their actual influence, as part of the health system remains undetermined, Most of the studies that have evaluated their work have focused on measures of accountability and independence, rather than the indicators of societal impact. As efforts to reform health systems continue internationally, it is crucial that we understand the benefits and costs of adjudicative tribunals for providers and consumers of heath. In this regard, empirically evaluating the impact of adjudicative tribunals will help inform policymaking through the collection of objective data. A strong and accountable health care system depends on understanding the way these tribunals work and the effects of their decisions.

Keywords: Health, adjudicative tribunals, adjudicative bodies, health systems, societal impact, health reform, health systems, empirical evaluation, accountability, independence
