In this chapter we discuss funding issues from a quality perspective at different levels of health care: the level of the patient and health care provider, the health care organization, and the health care network in the region. We will outline a number of issues that health care professionals as well as patients encounter in daily practice. Finally, we will argue how regional responsibility for the health and health care costs of the population can contribute to transparency in care outcomes and quality-enhancing funding.
