Cross-National Comparisons of Health Systems Quality Data, 2010


Comparisons of the U.S. health care system with those of other industrialized countries reveal striking differences in spending, the availability and use of services, and health outcomes. This project will produce the 12th paper in an annual series of Commonwealth Fund–supported analyses of key health data for the 30 membernations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The authors will provide an update of overall trends in the performance of health systems, with an emphasis on measures of efficiency. Findings will be presented at the Fund’s October 2010 International Symposium on Health Care Policy and submitted to the journal Health Affairs for publication. In addition, Fund staff will prepare a companion data brief and update the OECD data chartpack that is currently posted on the Fund’s Web site—a resource for journalists, policymakers, and researchers.
