Health systems in Europe are diverse, the result of history, culture and the economic and political environment in which they operate. They range from predominantly single-payer systems, such as the UK and Spain, which tend to spend a lower amount of their resources (Gross Domestic Product (GDP)) on healthcare; to systems of competing insurers and providers such as Germany and the Netherlands, which are two of Europe’s highest spenders on healthcare. Understanding what makes an effective healthcare system is therefore quite challenging. This week’s blog summarises the findings in our new report, Vital Signs- How to deliver better healthcare across Europe.
