Report on US health care system
#1
tha data was taken prior to implementation of the Affordable Health Care act.
http://www.commonwealthfund.org/publicat...ror-mirror

"The United States health care system is the most expensive in the world, but this report and prior editions consistently show the U.S. underperforms relative to other countries on most dimensions of performance. Among the 11 nations studied in this report..."

1171 if you dont like America or the fact that anyone can come here(and many risk their life to do so) why dont you go to one of those wonderful places? Does our health care need work? yes but quit comparing us to other countries that come here to get their surgeries done because the wait is so long in their socialized med countries.And many DIE waiting for it.

one of the ways to find which aspects needs work is to compare.
your comment makes no sense if you really believe our health care needs to improve. why would you not want to find out the ways to do it?
I think you already reached your conclusions before you got any facts and want to put down/stop any questions that might challenge them.
is every other system worse because it's not american?
are you blinded by our flag?

I got to agree with 1171 on this one, I know dentist that go to Mexico to get work on their teeth. Does that make them un-American? Don't think so, makes them smart, if they know what is better for them. America gets a lot of our oil from over seas, does that mean america is un-American ? Not everything great is in or comes from america.

Yep you can wrap me in our flag...we spent 7 years in Germany I watched people their in pain and couldnt go to a Dr...they had to go to a drugstore and let the druggest treat them. My friends Husband had to leave Germany and come to America to get his heart bypass the wait time would have killed him.
My one experience with them was a GYN appt I had a cyst on my ovary The Dr had two fingers inside and then slapped my side with a book. Yes it took care of it but I have had American Drs take care of them with a lot more compassion.Many people go to mexico to get treated because they treat them with medications that are not always safe.
Our biggest problem is the fact we as a nation love to sue and malpractice insurance is high here.Other countries cant sue their national health care. You like WC Docs you will like national health care...Months to get an appt. and fined if you go to the ER and it not an emergency.

My thoughts on this............why do people from Canada cross the border traveling to the Unites States for medical treatment if our is so awful?

Why isn't a study done on the health care injured workers receive.

the study is about a health care system not about the education, care, treatment etc. provided by individual doctors.
if you are rich enough anyone can travel to the best doctors in the world no matter how bad that country's health care is provided to it's people.

one person getting bad care or another getting exceptional care does not say anything about the whole system of providing health care for a population.
large studies have to be done to make any meaningful conclusions.

there are many studies/reports on medical care under workers comp.
here's some on california:
https://www.dir.ca.gov/chswc/medicalPage1.html
many states do them and there are some national studies as well
