What can the U.S. learn from national health accounting elsewhere?
Date of Pub
The United States is typically seen as an outlier in health spending when compared with other advanced nations. Recent improvements
in health accounting in lower- and middle-income countries suggest some common features with the high and pluralistic spending
in the United States. The author discusses recent developments and findings in health accounting outside the Organization
for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and their relevance for the United States. He argues that we should expect
more fruitful exchanges in the future.
