Assessing Health Care Around the World

by Karl Yaeger

On September 16, in Berlin, Germany, the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) will present a study comparing regional variations of health care delivery systems across 13 countries. Instrumental to the study is David Goodman, MD, MS, Professor at the Geisel School of Medicine and The Dartmouth Institute (TDI). Goodman is also the Co-PI of the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care, and the Director of the Wennberg International Collaborative , a research network that advances the study of unwarranted medical practice variation.

Goodman has served as an expert advisor to the OECD throughout the duration of the study, one of the largest and most robust of its kind.
