Our happy health care system.

Not like this is news to any nurse working/living in the United States, but: here.

Hmmm, the UK doing only a bit better, and still pretty far down the list. Badness.

Still, we beat Portugal. Go Team UK!

Hi - The comparison of national health systems is a very complicated situation. On many quality and cost measures the US doesn't compare well, but it usually does great on access - which is what most people say they want - mostly because they equate fast access with quality.

Also, I just wanted to let you know that I’ve started a new blog (www.healthpolcom.com/blog) about health policy topics – with an emphasis on the intersection of clinical and economic factors in the US healthcare system. From looking at your blog, I think you may find some of my posts interesting.

Also, I’ve put your blog on my “blogroll” -- and if you want to put a link to my blog on your site, that would be great too.

Thanks & Best Wishes, Mike
