Abstract
  • This thesis contributes to the literature on corruption in healthcare systems by comparing the effectiveness of governance in two wealthy, stable democracies: the United States and Germany. Supported by evidence from an assessment of four dimensions of governance in healthcare systems, including accountability, transparency, monitoring and regulation and trust, it is argued that systems with less regulatory control and intervention from the state are more susceptible to higher rates of corruption. Implications from this research and evaluation may aid public officials around the world in designing more effective modes of healthcare governance, and eventually improving the overall access to and quality of healthcare provision.
