Survival vs Mortality Rates: Healthcare Triage #7

Almost every time someone wants to proclaim the US to be the “best in the world” in health care, they point to survival rates. Those refer to the percent of people who live a certain amount of time after they’ve been diagnosed with a disease. But there are real problems in using survival rates to compare the quality of care across systems. The metric people should be using is mortality rates. And when we compare mortality rates, we don’t look nearly as good. Why is this important? Glad you asked. We answer in this week’s episode.

This happens to be one of Aaron’s pet peeves. He’s written on it many, many times at his blog. Many posts, all of which are chock full of links and references, can be found here: http://theincidentaleconomist.com/wordpress/tag/survival-rate/

The Health System of Taiwan: HCT Healthcare of Many Nations

Every once in a while, we like to take a moment and focus on health systems around the world. Today, we’re looking at Taiwan, which made the transition to a single payer system kind of suddenly, and pretty recently.

What Americans dont understand about Public Healthcare

Public Healthcare, or as Americans call it: Social Healthcare, is an issue of contention almost every single U.S election. And the 2020 presidential elections won’t be any different. Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, Elisabeth Warren, and Bill de Blasio already voiced their support during Democratic primaries. However, what every election cycle in the United States also has in common is that the candidates who support public healthcare never actually present any plans for how the system would work or what it would even look like. Additionally, many American advocates of public healthcare don’t seem to know much about the social sacrifices, reforms and additional health measures that come with public healthcare to ensure a healthy society. In this video that will be discussed and several American misconceptions about public healthcare will be talked about.

Comparing South Korean Healthcare with the NHS

While visiting South Korea I needed to go to a hospital for a brief consultation and minor procedure. The circumstances of the visit were similar to when I’d gone to the NHS hospital in England, but the experience was completely different.
As a follow-up to my video about my NHS experience, I thought it would be interesting to describe the equivalent Korean experience.
