Today’s podcast covers my recent experiences with the Israeli health system. I think there is a lot to learn: from booking a GP visit online; the efficiencies of the online systems for booking and results; fewer support staff than I remember from the UK; quick appointments.
The whole system isn’t perfect but even though the cost is somewhat obscured to the user at the point of delivery (just like in the UK system), to my eyes it seems to be run comparatively well.
Even though I’m nervous about my entire medical records being online, I must admit they make the entire system much more efficient and it is great to get emails a few hours after a complex test with a link to the full results.
