International Healthcare Comparisons
The ‘On-call’ Facility for International Healthcare Comparisons provides timely, targeted, relevant and concise information on a range of health policy themes from Europe, Australia and New Zealand to inform health policy developments in England.
Our work focuses on comparative analysis to facilitate learning from the experience of other health systems as an input to policy development by the Department of Health.
We respond to specific requests for information on international experience in areas ranging from health sector capacity planning to activity-based financing of hospitals. The themes we work on are selected in close consultation with the Department of Health. We provide in-depth analyses and rapid-response-type briefings based on data provided by the International Healthcare Comparisons Network
