LAP Lambert Academic Publishing Health Care Financing Patterns in the Developed Countries is actually a comparative analysis of the Republic of Korea, the Czech Republic and the Republic of Finland and their healthcare systems and finances. This study reviews the historical data (in terms of population, GDP, public spending, etc.) thorough each of the development stages of these three countries in search of similarities that would define patterns that in effect influence healthcare spending.
