MEI – Excerpt # 3 – Waiting time

As a part of its research program on the various health care systems around the world, Jasmin Guénette, vice president of the Montreal Economic Institute (MEI), visited Switzerland to see how health care is delivered there. Filmed in the summer of 2012, this report shows how private hospitals make a significant contribution to the efficiency and accessibility of care within the universal health care system. From the testimony of patients, doctors and administrators, we discover a health care system based on solidarity and freedom of choice that is at the cutting edge of technology, in which the very concept of waiting lists is nonexistent.
