Lazy Sundays 5

14 Aug

This weekend, I thought it would be educational for everyone to take an international jaunt around the industrialized world to see how health care is delivered in other countries. Now, do keep in mind that these are “snippets” — not meant to be entirely thorough, but rather to give you a taste of how other places do things.

First up is a series from Jenny Kakasuleff of The Examiner:

The Canadian Health Care System

The British Health Care System

The Taiwanese Health Care System

The German Health Care System

The Japanese Health Care System

The French Health Care System**

And of course, there’s my favorite:

Health Care in the Netherlands: A Model for U.S. Reform?
by Brad Wright

**There’s a chance I might be headed to France in October to learn about their health care system firsthand. If I do get the opportunity, I plan to have a special blog series all about it. So stay tuned.

    This was extraordinarily helpful. I spent ~2 hours following the links and reading the content.
