I liked the discussion on the healthcare indicators in variouscountries. The health indicators will vary from one country toanother, and this idea conforms to the debate as the healthcareindicators in the United States do range from those in Japan. I foundthe idea of high costs of healthcare, medical errors worrying as noteveryone could not afford to pay for the healthcare bills. I haveearlier witnessed people who forfeit visiting the hospitals simplybecause they are not in a position to pay the hospital bills. Thesituation calls for the hospitals to review the cost they charge formedication to make the healthcare services accessible to everyone(Niles, 2015). I liked the idea of the hospitals introducing theoutpatient services as the views increased the number of patientsserved. Despite the notion of presenting the outpatient services inhospital being good, it torments the local hospitals, and they end upclosing down, as the competition is high.

It is upsettingto have a significant number of deaths in the United States thatresult from inadequate mental health care. It is so annoying to havepeople die out of medical errors when they are put in the hands oftrusted physicians and nurses (Niles, 2015). I like the idea of thehealth coverage in the United States being paid by the government.The introduction of health insurance cover increases the qualityhealth care in a country. The presentation of health care is thuscomparable with the increased health care costs in Japan, but thepatients are given a chance to have a medical insurance cover thatcan help them explain their hospital bills. I enjoyed the discussionas it puts it clear that the most successful systems in one countrymight not be the solution to another country. I second the idea ofconstantly reevaluating the systems and the results depicted bypeople (Niles, 2015). It is through the reevaluation that the systemswill improve and meet the needs of the citizens.
