Print Friendly, PDF & Email
This report, published by the Commonwealth Fund, presents overviews of the healthcare systems of Australia, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. William A. Haseltine and Chang Liu provided the overview for Singapore, which can be found starting on page 123.

Each overview covers health insurance, public and private financing, health system organization and governance, healthcare quality and coordination, disparities, efficiency and integration, use of information technology and evidence based practice, cost containment, and recent reforms and innovations. In addition, summary tables provide data on a number of key health system characteristics and performance indicators, including overall healthcare spending, hospital spending and utilization, healthcare access, patient safety, care coordination, chronic care management, disease prevention, capacity for quality improvement, and public views.
