What Americans Can Learn from Chinese Health Care

World Journal, Posted: Jun 16, 2009

NEW YORK - The World Journal reports that Chinese American physicians have been successful in making health care services accessible to more people at a reduced cost. Jigao Liu, director of Chinese American Physicians Association in New York, suggested that other communities may be able to benefit from their approach to health care. For example, Chinese physicians work long hours and make themselves available by phone to their patients after their office hours. As a result, he said, less patients end up in the emergency room, which reduces everyone's health care costs.
