Question and answer
As prices increase, should health economists advocate giving something up?
Health promotion is an area that has been relatively neglected by health economists. [ There are a variety of reasons for this, including lack of demand by health promotion specialists, misunderstanding of what health economics has to offer the discipline of health promotion, misunderstanding of what health promotion is trying to do on the part of health economists, and perceived difficulties in
applying standard economic appraisal techniques to health promotion programmes. Health Promotion Wales was the first UK Health Promotion Agency to employ a health economist. In February 1998, at a meeting of the research departments of the four territorial agencies at the time (Health Promotion Wales, Health Education Authority, England, Health Promotion Authority for Northern Ireland and the Health Education Board for Scotland), it was decided that a position paper on health economics and health promotion would be useful. A meeting involving seven health economists from six universities and six health promotion researchers representing the then four UK agencies was held to inform this paper. ]

Weegy: The U.S. leads the world in spending for healthcare. Here, 14-15% of the GDP is allocated to healthcare costs. Per person that adds up to $5,500 per year. [ In Switzerland the average cost per person is $3,240 and in Canada it is $2,792. The striking contrast illustrated above leads to the question: What exactly are we getting for the extra money? Why is U.S. healthcare so much more expensive than it is in other countries? “85% of Americans are insured and therefore also have a professional guide which lends them to ‘luxurious services,’” says Dr. Reinhardt, “the U.S. offers an array of sophisticated care to its patients that other countries tend to neglect.” In spite of this, most Americans are still dissatisfied with the quality of care they receive. According to a recent survey, Americans give lower grades to healthcare than do citizens of Canada or Switzerland. “The tort system that operates within the US judicial structure may have something to do with the high cost of healthcare,” notes Dr. Reinhardt. “A neurosurgeon in the U.S. pays more for malpractice suits than what other surgeons around the world earn annually,” he emphasized, “not to mention the huge overhead created by bureaucracy.” According to Henry Aaron of the New England Journal of Medicine, there is $300 billion in spending used for health administration each year. Reinhardt urged, “We should demand evidence based administration only.” ] (More)
