The 5 stages of a contracting lifecycle. Created by Prographics.
To advance toward universal health coverage, sponsors of health care programs are seeking ways to improve consumer access to quality, affordable health services, including those for family planning.
Governments, donors, insurance companies, private employers, and other purchasers have long contracted private (not-for-profit, for-profit, and faith-based) providers to deliver health care services. Through contracting, they can increase the number of service delivery points providing priority health services; encourage efficiency and quality in service delivery by instituting clinical and non-clinical standards; and reduce financial barriers for clients such as high out-of-pocket payments at the time of care.
