Europe and the United States: Contrast and Convergence

Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 33 (3):280-293 (2008)
Abstract
Though the health care systems of the United States and the European countries are very different, they are being buffeted by similar problems: rising health care costs caused by aging populations, technology, and rising public demand and expectations. The primary difference is that the US system is heavily privatized, whereas the European systems are heavily government run or operated. But the latter systems are increasingly open to market ideas and practices while the US is steadily being pushed toward a stronger government role. This article offers some speculation about their gradual convergence in the years ahead
