abstract

  • Present health care system reforms, such as the rapid growth of managed care in the United States and the introduction of general practitioner (GP) fundholding in the United Kingdom, have some striking similarities. These similarities are particularly evident in primary care. Yet, the health care delivery systems in the United States and the United Kingdom are so different that some policymakers claim that comparisons between the 2 systems are almost impossible to make.
