ctrp311 Hackers and Healthcare Part II

Part II of my interviews with hackers at HAR2009 earlier this month.  Once again I’m asking people from different countries how their healthcare system works. This time I speak with a Brazilian, a Slovakian, a Dane, and a Swiss person, who tell me their experiences with insurance, doctors, hospitals and much more.

If you haven’t heard part 1, I recommend you go back and hear it first before listening to these. The point of doing these interviews was not to somehow gather examples of how public or national healthcare is great, rather it is to show people throughout the world, especially in the US where the government could possibly adopt a public insurance option, how it works (well or not so well) for other nations.

Flattr this!

    I wish there were a part III wherein you discuss The Netherlands. The Swiss and Dutch solutions (private insurance with universal coverage and regulation(?)) is talked about here in the U.S. as an option to look at. What’s it like there?
