Compare countries on healthcare. Read the results of an in-depth study to compare US healthcare and 10 other highest-income countries (UK, Canada, Germany, Australia, Japan, Sweden, France, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Denmark). Both costs and factors such as health status, utilization, salaries and prices paid were examined. Prices for labor, pharmaceuticals and administrative costs appeared to be the major drivers of the higher US costs. Authors suggest policy makers consider these data in making decisions.
