The Influence of Health Systems on the Efficiency of Cancer Treatment Applying Porter’s Five Forces
Raiciu, C. D., Couturier, J., Sola, D.

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between the oncology markets in the UK, France and the Netherlands and the characteristics of the health care systems in the three countries.

This study is based on a comprehensive review of healthcare related reports and semi-structured interviews with patients, doctors, oncology pharmacists, drug producers, retailers, charity organizations and healthcare managers from the three countries included in the analysis.

Building on Porter's Industrial Model, we show that - by influencing the bargaining power of buyers and sellers, the existence of substitutes in the market, and the number of competitors - government regulations can shape the attractiveness of the oncology market and influence health outcomes for patients with cancer.
