The health system is the culmination of organizations, institutions, and resources which work together for the purpose of providing health care and improvement in health. This complex system comprises a number of different levels: patient, practitioner, Care Team, Care Delivery Institutions and Global Environment.
There is a flaw regarding current comparison between health care systems, and indeed the evaluation of any healthcare system on its own. It has to do with the definition of health. To appreciate the depth of the problem and its insidious nature, it is perhaps best to begin in general terms.
