The Health Consumer Powerhouse (HCP) Ltd has released the 2016 Euro Health Consumer Index (EHCI). The EHCI, started in 2005, assesses the performance of national healthcare systems in 35 countries. The EHCI analyses national healthcare on 48 indicators, looking into areas such as Patient Rights and Information, Access to Care, Treatment Outcomes, Range and Reach of Services, Prevention and use of Pharmaceuticals. The 2016 report concluded European healthcare is steadily improving: infant mortality as well as survival rates of heart disease, stroke and cancer are all moving in the right direction. Patient choice and involvement are developing. But still too many countries stick to inefficient ways to fund and deliver care services.
