Internists diagnose health-care system ills, show how to achieve universal coverage
Date:12/3/2007

alysis of the advantages and disadvantages of pluralistic systems (Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, and Switzerland) and single-payer systems (Canada, Japan, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom).

The American College of Physicians does not want to replicate what other countries do, said Joel S. Levine, MD, FACP, chair of ACPs Board of Regents. We try to identify approaches that the evidence shows are more likely to be effective and that ultimately will result in a health care system that is fair, cost effective, and efficient.

ACP further calls on policymakers to:

2. create incentives to encourage patients to be prudent purchasers by having access to health information necessary for informed decision-making;

3. avert a collapse of primary care by developing a national workforce policy that ensures an adequate supply of physicians trained to manage care for the whole patient;

4. redirect federal health care policy toward supporting the patient-centered medical home, an innovative practice system designed to strengthen the physician-patient relationship by having a primary care physician coordinate a team of health care professionals as they address the full range of a patients needs;

5. provide financial incentives for physicians for care coordination, disease prevention, and achievement of evidence-based performance standards;

6. reduce the costs of health care administration by creating a uniform billing system for all services;

7. support with federal funds an inter-operable health information technology infrastructure;

8. encourage public and private investment in medical research and assessments of the comparative effectiveness of different medical treatments;

The American College of Physicians has a long-standing commitment to improving health care in the U.S., said J. Fred Ralston, MD, FACP, chair of ACPs Health and Public Policy Committe
