Abstract

The growth of corporatism in health-care in the US, and the consequences arising from US models of health-care delivery systems provide an enormously valuable point of comparison with health systems of other developed economies, such as Australia. If lessons are to be learnt from the US, then an analysis of the structure and performance of the US health-care system provides important background for understanding and assessing contemporary policy changes to administrative and organizational designs and techniques for patient care in Australia.
