After decentralizing health management in the early 1980s, China’s health care system developed many of the problems that we in the United States are currently working to solve. Though China is literally on the other side of the world, I think we might learn a few very important lessons from a close look at their successes, failures, trends, and goals in health care administration and delivery.
