Internists Diagnose Health Care System Ills, Prescribe Remedies to Achieve Universal Coverage, Better Quality, and Lower Costs
Date:12/3/2007

Second largest physician group in U.S. provides evidence-based recommendations after analyzing health care systems in 12 industrialized

countries

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- In a new evidence-based paper, the American College of Physicians (ACP) analyzes health care in the United States and 12 other industrialized countries and identifies lessons that could be applied to the particular political and social culture of the United States to achieve a high performing health care system, including achieving universal health insurance coverage for all Americans.

"As the nation's largest medical specialty organization, the American College of Physicians is uniquely qualified to inform the public debate and the presidential campaign about reforming the U.S. health care system," said ACP President David C. Dale, MD, FACP. "A growing number of studies by health policy experts have exposed the limitations of the U.S. health care system.

"Our recommendations provide evidence-based solutions to our country's many health care problems -- including the appalling lack of access to affordable heath coverage, the impending crisis caused by the insufficient supply of primary care physicians, rising health care costs, and excessive administrative and regulatory costs."

In the paper, "Achieving a High Performance Health Care System with Universal Access: What the USA Can Learn from Other Countries," published on the Web site of ACP's flagship journal, Annals of Internal Medicine, ACP notes that spending on health care in the United States is the highest in the world and has been rising at a faster pace than spending in the rest of the economy. Yet an estimated 47 million Americans -- nearly 16 percent of the population -- lack health insurance protection. Even among those with health insurance coverage, wide variations exist in terms of cost, utilization, quality, and access to health care services.
