Summary:

Toward Universal Healthcare

Universal healthcare coverage remains elusive, both with respect to definition and delivery, and even in well-funded health systems. Indeed, the New Zealand and Australian health systems are characterised by cultural, geographic and disciplinary inequality rather than universalism. Ironically, this inequality not only results from the ways in which these systems operate but is also one of the major factors that contribute to these health systems existing in an inflexible Nash Equilibrium; if universalism is the goal, then core planning, delivery and funding processes remain essentially unchanged despite decades of progressive system ‘failure’.

The multi-factorial and interactive basis of that ‘failure’ needs to be identified if the inequality is to be addressed. Given that the quality and cost of healthcare is determined at the provider-consumer (patient) interface, and if universalism is desired, then there is a pivotal and ethical role for the College and its Fellows in addressing this.
