Hospital care is the largest part of health care expenditures. Thinking about the future it seems that this kind of costs will increase: the multiplication and specialisation of functions, together with the growth in new technologies, have a big effect on health expenditures. Yet, new technologies represent also a factor of innovation in the health care system: in many cases they have supported the possibility of day hospital and ambulatorial care. Not surprisingly there is a strong emphasis on de-hospitalisation; hospital beds reduction and home care. The authors describe pro and cons of this trend.
