    Abstract

    This study assesses the potential of the concept of “mortality amenable to health care” as an indicator of outcome for health care systems. It presents estimates of the mortality amenable to health care in 31 OECD countries for the period 1997-2007. It measures the sensitivity of this indicator to the list of death causes considered to be “amenable to care” by comparing results obtained from two leading lists. It then presents the advantages of this indicator over indicators of general mortality, as well as its limitations. Cette étude évalue dans quelle mesure l’indicateur de « mortalité évitable grâce au système de soins » peut être utilisé comme indicateur de résultat du système de soins. Elle présente des estimations de cette mortalité évitable par les soins pour 31 pays de l’OECD et pour la période 1997-2007. Elle mesure la sensibilité de l’indicateur à la liste de causes de décès considérées comme évitables par les soins en comparant les résultats obtenus à partir de deux listes alternatives. Puis, elle présente les avantages de cet indicateur sur les indicateurs de mortalité générale, ainsi que ses limites.
