For U.S. Employers, Health Care Reform Is a Watching and Waiting Game – Maureen Hoch – Our Editors – Harvard Business Review.

Any thoughts?

This is an excellent article on the Chinese healthcare system published by the Economist. It’s well worth a read. Check it out!

Health-care reform: Feeling your pain | The Economist.

When I was in China, I became aware that healthcare in prosperous cities like Shanghai and Beijing was much more readily available than in smaller cities or the countryside where traditional Chinese medicine is still a first choice. The Economist story is set in Shanghai where the standards are among the best in China; so this puts the challenge of Chinese healthcare reform into wider context.

As people grumble about the NHS in the UK or healthcare in the US under President Obama, spare a thought for the critically ill in China!
