Healthcare study ranks Australia second best in developed world, while US comes in last

Healthcare study ranks Australia second best in developed world, while US comes in last
The World Today By Stephen Smiley Updated about 5 hours ago

Australia's healthcare system has been ranked among the best in the developed world by a team of American researchers who have ranked their own country's system the worst.

In their study of 11 different national health care models, researchers at the New York-based Commonwealth Fund ranked Australia's mixed public-private system second best.

They concluded the United Kingdom's National Health Service was the best system overall, followed by Australia, then the Netherlands, with Norway and New Zealand sharing fourth place.

5. If the US would set aside our greed, fear & pride and...

not only look to these other countries to see what they're all doing to do this so well but be willing to learn from them and use their methods we could have the best healthcare in the world.

Instead... we've allowed big corporate/Republican greed, fear, etc to first screw up the creation of the ACA and now pull this BS Trumpcare that amounts to deathcare for millions.

4. We can vouch for that. 14 years here and 40 years there.

This place sucks for health care. Soon to be Wealthcare.

8. But what about all those "market based" health systems that work so well all over the world?



That might be because none exist.

We need to get the for profit middle men out of the system.

12. In a for profit business

Profit is king.

Health care comes in dead last in that scenario as we will all see real soon.

11. If you have millions in your bank account

it may be the best.

For the vast unwashed masses though...not so much.

16. What about Canada?

I always thought Canada had a good system,
but it's not in the top 10.

I wonder where it ranks.

18. It's Number 9 on the Overall Ranking

in the list above.

S'OK. I was wondering where France was (I had always seen it in the top 5 of every list). It was because my eyes started boggling over the letters that didn't actually form words. Sort of like Where's Waldo when there are red stripes all over the picture.

19. Sad

The sad thing is that this ranking is based on Obamacare. Change it out with the repuke plan du jour, and we'll probably rank alongside Zimbabwe.
