U.S. Healthcare Systems
The U.S. healthcare system is influenced by a shifting political climate, constant economic development, rapidly evolving technological innovation, diffusion of social values, demanding workforce issues, and demographics trends. Also, the U.S. system differs from other countries’ systems on many dimensions, such as lack of a central governing agency, limited coordination, high costs but only average health outcomes, imperfect market conditions, the dominant private sector market, multiple organizational forms and players, and the conflict between market goals and social justice. The concern over the economic future of healthcare systems revolves around three broad issues: cost, quality, and access. Gaps in coverage, combined with the upward trends in medical care spending over the past several decades, add to the commonly held belief that the U.S. healthcare systems is in crisis.
