A Cross-National Look at Hospitals and Their Health Care Systems: Views of U.S. Hospital Executives in Comparison to Four Other Countries

×

The most recent Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey asked hospital executives in five countries—Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States—for their views of their nation's health care system, the level and quality of hospital resources, and efforts to improve quality of care. Findings show that half of hospital executives in the United States are dissatisfied with the health care system, a significantly higher proportion than in the other four nations surveyed.
