Publisher's Summary

The preeminent doctor and bioethicist Ezekiel Emanuel is repeatedly asked one question: Which country has the best health care? He set off to find an answer.

The US spends more than any other nation, nearly four trillion dollars, on health care. Yet, for all that expense, the US is not ranked number one - not even close.

In Which Country Has the World's Best Healthcare? Ezekiel Emanuel profiles 11 of the world's health-care systems in pursuit of the best or at least where excellence can be found. Using a unique comparative structure, the book allows health-care professionals, patients, and policymakers alike to know which systems perform well, and why, and which face endemic problems. From Taiwan to Germany, Australia to Switzerland, the most inventive health-care providers tackle a global set of challenges - in pursuit of the best health care in the world. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Confusing..

I would not recommend this book. it has a lot of details maybe a bit too much. but the most annoying thing is that the author contradicts himself multiple times and doesn't really have a structured way to compare healthcare, even if he said that comparison is hard and he will try to compare on multiple categories. What really happens is contradiction and confusion.

Too much detail for audio book

The book is well researched and well put together if you want a deep understanding of each country’s healthcare system. As an audio book, however, it was harder to get through.
