This month Bloomberg identified the most and the least efficient health care systems on a worldwide basis, highlighting those of Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan as the world’s best.
On the same list Greece holds the 30th place while the United States earned an efficiency score of 30.8, ranking 46th place.
For the rankings, Bloomberg researchers used data from the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, World Health Organization (WHO) and Hong Kong Department of Health.
Researchers ranked only countries with a population of at least five million, a life expectancy of at least 70 years, and a gross domestic product (GDP) of at least $5,000. Each of the 48 qualifying countries’ health care system was evaluated based on life expectancy, relative per capita cost of health care as well as absolute per capita cost of health care (expenditures covering preventive services, family planning, nutrition, and emergency aid).
Bloomberg gave each country an efficiency “score,” with a score of 100 representing a perfect system.
