Healthcare ComparisonComparison of the health care system
Health survey, Australia occupies the second place in the industrialized countries, while the USA occupies the last place.
The Australian healthcare system was rated among the best in the advanced worlds by a US research group that gave the poorest marks to their own country's system. Scientists at the New York-based Commonwealth Fund have chosen Australia's hybrid public-private system as the runner-up in their 11 different nationwide healthcare model studies.
If one compares Australia and the other nations with their home country, the writers said: "US healthcare results, such as baby fatality and 60 year old longevity, are relatively poor in the US. "The United States has the highest available death rates for healthcare and has seen the smallest decrease in this intervention in the last ten years.
"Although the nation spends almost twice as much as several other nations, its record is weak. "Disclosure of the study's findings has taken place because US President Donald Trump is putting downward pressures on US government officials to overturn the health care reform of his forerunner Barack Obama. The House Republicans closely approved the Obamacare annulment law in May, and their colleagues in the Senate will be voting on the annulment in the coming weeks. 21 of the House Republicans agreed to the Obamacare annulment law.
Talking over the weekend, Mr Trump said his reform would make America's healthcare system work better, even though two presidential own faction members have said they can't support it. "Senate will be voting on law to rescue Americans from the Obamacare disaster," Mr Trump said.
"If we don't make up for it, the disaster will only get even more serious, and I think it will get much more serious. "In May, Mr Trump used a joint media briefing with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in New York to claim that Australia's system was better than his own.
"He said, we have inadequate health care." "I shouldn't say this to our great gentlemen and my boyfriend from Australia because you have better healthcare than we do. "Commentaries were received with bewilderment in the US, where Democrats pointed out that the Australian system contained a Medicare system that was more widely financed by the public than the American system.
In spite of Mr Trump's comment on the Australian system, the analysts say that the Obamacare waiver law he advocates would actually make the US system less like Australia's and no more. Menzies Centre at the University of Sydney healthcare researcher Dr Lesley Russell said very few people believe that Mr Trump's reform will help the US healthcare system.
"It is very clear that Obamacare has made a significant distinction in the number of insured and in the level of healthcare," she said. "The Senate of Republicans' proposal is to take away the medical cover of the 23 million Americans they currently have and let the 28 million Americans that Obamacare did not reach without cover.
"The majority of those working in public healthcare say the popular suggestions supported by Paul Ryan, leader of the Senate majority, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump will be a catastrophe. "Asked if they could express an opinion on the Commonwealth Fund, which states that Australia's system is among the best in the worlds, Dr Russell said the conclusions should be seen in perspective.
"Therefore, all self-congratulation and commendation should be dampened, because Australia is ranked very badly on an own capitals-basis. "According to the Commonwealth Fund report, Australia's capital was below par. However, overall the US writers still thought that many of these nations could benefit from the Australian system.
