The need to contain healthcare expenditure, looking at quality of assistance as well, has lead recently to the implementation of new assistance paradigms. Home hospitalization is intended to improve quality of assistance, because it ensure the patients to remain in their own environment, assisted by their families. The relevance of such issues is even higher when the assistance is directed towards cancer patients. The purpose of the paper is analyzing level of costs for alternative assistance programs for cancer patients. The analysis has been carried out for Regione Calabria (Italy). Patients in the sample have been distinguished into several groups according to their health conditions as inferred by a multidimensional evaluation: patients’ multidimensional evaluation has been correlated with the level of costs.
