Americans Carry Two Burdens When it Comes to Healthcare: "As indicated by a survey of almost 7,000 patients traversing Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the USA, not only do Americans pay much more for medical treatment than anyone else in the world but they also bear the brunt of the most medical errors. What's striking is that we are clearly a world leader in how much we spend on health care, clearly, we should be doing better. Other specialists agreed, saying the results offer the most recent evidence that the quality of care delivered by the U.S. healthcare system is seriously eroding even as health care costs skyrocket." No wonder smart Americans are shopping globally for better healthcare !
