Multinational Comparisons of Health Systems Data, 2013

International comparisons offer a valuable tool to health ministers, policymakers, and academics wishing to evaluate the performance of their country's health care system relative to others. In a new chartbook, The Commonwealth Fund’s David Squires uses data collected by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to compare 13 health care systems on spending, hospitals, physicians, pharmaceuticals, prevention, mortality, quality and safety, and prices. The countries compared in the chartbook are: Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
