Many believe America spends more on healthcare than most developed countries. America may spend more on healthcare, but life expectancy in the United States is not the best, and the cost of healthcare services and drugs is high.
Use the AIU Library to research trends in healthcare expenditure in America for the past 3 years, and compare this with the healthcare expenditure of any 2 developed countries. Prepare a minimum 3-page report, including the following:

Examine 3 peer-reviewed articles on trends in healthcare expenditure in the United States for the past 3 years. 
Examine 3 peer-reviewed articles on healthcare expenditure for 2 developed countries in the past 3 years.  
In your report, include the population size, total expenditure on health, health status, life expectancy, and a breakdown of health expenditure on different components of the healthcare system for the United States and the two developed countries. 
Provide a summary comparison of your findings for the United States and the two other countries. Give your views on how you think the United States is performing.
