There are also have a healthy population and a system which is encouraged heavilly invested in primary and preventive government healthcare.For the nascent private health sector, competing with government infrastructure is an uphill task. Al Shatti Hospital, one of the oldest private hospitals, is yet to break even.
Want the the hard facts look at Infant Mortality Rates, US is ranked 44th. The US has the same life-expectancy of Chile at 7 times the cost. The medical profession says it is broken it costs a fortune. What number are you looking for? IMR is usually a good indicator but lets get a few more.
The reason equaity comes into the equation is because it is very easy to have a great health system if you only have to treat the healthy people. That why it is important. one in every six people in the US have no insurance, this would be a higher risk group.
So why are we talking about the US health system. Well! IT doesn't say Oman Politics Online and the subject is not about Oman health system.
About me copying or pasting, I am backing up my arguement with facts, something which you have not done since the start of this thread. I would normally find it insulting to say I was Lazy but I am starting to see you cannot back up anything you are saying so you don't back up your statements..
The 'quality measures' have come to you in IMR, Life expectancy, doctor ratios... but you have choosen to ignore them. We have shown it to you in the lack of investment in Healthcare IT but you choose to ignore it...
In healthcare I use figures from WHO, Commonwealth Fund, OECD, Work Bank, Lancet... Where is anything backing up what you are saying?
But the thing you don't seem to get is that I don't have to say the more socialized healthcare system is better then less socialized healthcare system. I have already shown that with costs, it is 50% cheaper. Less socialized healthcare or more Private care is not better and in cases we have shown it to be worst.
Still going strong here.
US is running a total healthcare costs about 5% of GDP above the every other country in the world.
Can some one point it out to me a proper size first world country where a more socialized healthcare system is cheaper then less socialized healthcare system...
