Hospitals across countries face common pressures of changing ideology, shifting consumer demand, and financial and budgetary pressure. This chapter addresses the question of whether such common pressure also leads to similar policy directions and organizational change. It examines the experience of five industrialized countries: the United States, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
