There is no doubt that economic issues are becoming more and more relevant also in national health systems, in which services cost is covered totally or mainly by taxation. Nevertheless, economic logic and principles must remain ancillary to health features and to human relations between health care professionals and their patients. Economic criteria should never become a priority because this will produce what the authors define as 'defensive economy' that means under treatment to cope with financial constraints. Defensive economy is the contrary of defensive medicine that increases cost because of over treatment. The authors conclude that while standardization can be a useful dimension for better organizing health care structures and systems, personalization remains the pillar of health care services.
