    A question or two.

    With all health care systems around the world are there any rankings or information as which countries have the best medical diagnostic accuracy?

    If no, how could that be obtained? Do poor outcomes relate in any way?

    Would rankings allow us to spread the word as to what works in top ranked countries?

    If anyone could answer that question, it's probably Laura Zwaan.
    If quality is a measure of diagnostic accuracy, most of Europe is ahead of the USA. But the "if" is a big one.
