Producing Health Consuming Health Care Spending Thermostat Model

Now let’s return to the thermostat analogy to control health spend. We add a healthy population target and an annual health spend.

We can target our spending to reduce the onset (incidence) by say vaccination, or improving access or curative treatment.

We decide to spend based on the health target gap between the healthy population stock and the healthy population target
