March 13, 2018
(UPI) – Americans are spending nearly twice as much on healthcare as 10 other high-income countries because of the high costs of services, according to a new study at Harvard. Salaries of physicians and nurses, pharmaceuticals, medical devices and facility administration are fueling high costs for care in the United States, according to a study at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, the Harvard Global Health Institute and the London School of Economics. The findings were published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
