Canadian And Us Health Care Systems Performance And Governance: Elements Of Convergence
AbstractInternational comparisons of the organization and performance of health care sectors are increasingly informing policy makers about potential policies relating to the cost of, and access to, health care. Perhaps nowhere have such comparisons featured as prominently as in North America. In debates on health care policy reform politicians, academics and critics in both the United States and Canada have compared the development, funding and delivery systems in the two countries. The inferences drawn from these comparisons are frequently used in recommendations to modify each system.
