Kirjeldus: The research undertaken in the framework of this project sought to contribute to the understanding of hospital reform in Bulgaria and Estonia by means of a detailed analysis of some policies implemented in both countries aimed at rationalising the provision of hospital services. An analysis of the theoretical and practical aspects of the hospital reforms in the two countries was performed. A study collecting primary data on the views and attitudes of hospital managers and stakeholders concerning the achievements and challenges in the reform of hospital care was conducted. A range of specific topics were selected to address the issues subject to research: a) review of health and hospital reform strategies in Bulgaria and Estonia; b) hospital service delivery, decentralization and level of hospital autonomy; c) measures for improving hospital efficiency. Several complementary research methods were employed: literature review, postal survey of hospital managers and supervisory boards by means of semi-structured questionnaires, and in-depth interviews with key informants using topic guides.
