Cross-National Comparisons of Health Systems Quality Data, 2007


Comparisons of the U.S. health care system with those of other industrialized countries reveal striking differences in spending, availability and use of services, and health outcomes. This project will produce the 10th paper in an annual series of analyses of key health data for the 30 member-nations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The authors will provide an update of overall trends in health systems' performance, with an emphasis on the core dimensions of high performance. A secondary theme will be national financing strategies and the impact of various approaches to the public/private mix. Findings will be presented at the Fund's October 2007 International Symposium and submitted to the journal Health Affairs for Web publication. The chartpack containing core OECD data that is currently available on the Fund's Web site will be updated as a resource for journalists, policymakers, and researchers.
