International Data Tracking Project: Comparison of Health Care Costs in the U.S. with Those in Selected Countries, 2014


This project will build on earlier work that generated baseline health system cost data for the United States and selected countries belonging to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The data analyses for 2014 will include an updated comparison of prices for 25 or more hospital procedures or diagnoses, and a comparison of costs for three high-volume, high-cost medical devices, including analysis of the impact of national procurement and transparency policies. Subjects for additional country comparisons will be informed by discussions with The Commonwealth Fund’s new council of economic advisers. The findings, which are expected to generate interest among policymakers, researchers and journalists, will be presented at the Fund’s 2014 International Symposium.
