Cross-Cutting Themes and Implications Outcomes and quality have improved but there is room forimprovement in all countries There is a clear need to contain public spending Per capita spending has risen by 70% since the early90s U.S. is an outlier on access and affordability Cost-sharing and benefit design matters Strong primary care medical homes make a difference inall countries 27. Health care systems: getting more value for money (OECD Report, 2010) There is no health care system that performs systematicallybetter in delivering cost-effective health care. On average, life expectancy at birth could be raised by morethan two years, while holding health care spending steady, if allcountries were to become as efficient as the best performers. Health outcomes are highly disparate across individuals andsuch inequalities can be reduced without sacrificing efficiency There is no one-size-fits-all approach to reforming health caresystems. By improving the efficiency of the health care system, publicspending savings would be large, approaching 2% of GDP onaverage in the OECD. 28.

Strategies in Use OECD: Reliance on market mechanisms andregulations to steer demand andsupply Coverage principles to promote equity Budget and management approachesto control public spending 30. Market Mechanisms Users Price signals Gate keeping & limited choice among providers Providers Mitigating volume incentives Regulating prices Enhancing patient choice User information on quality and price 31. Common International Trends Standardizing and integrating healthinformation technology and other electronicdata innovations Bolstering the research enterprise andintegrating CER into decision-making Engaging patients meaningfully in their careand shifting the perspective of research to bepatient-centeredKalipso Chalkidou, NICE International 32. Engaging Patients American patients who feel engaged by theirproviders are more likely to rate their care as highquality than engaged patients in other countries Low income patients were less likely to feel engagedthan higher income patients American patients are likely to report positive careexperience, even if clinical needs were not met American patients exhibited the greatest disparities incare and engagementR.
