In part two of this series, John Dalton looks at how three countries - France, Germany, and The United Kingdom - succeed in producing value with their respective healthcare systems. John covers France's two tier healthcare system, Germany's insurance mandate system, and the United Kingdom's single payer system. While each country has their own approach to health insurance, John finds some common themes.
