Abstract: The aim of the study is to compare and explain the performance of the different healthcare system types. Current academic research into healthcare system and healthcare rankings tend to be descriptive and lack a systemic analysis of the trends. Healthcare performance in this study refers to cost-effectiveness, which comprises the efficiency of translating monetary input into healthcare provision and the effectiveness of healthcare provision in delivering the health outcome. Through existing research, the healthcare system of 30 OECD countries and Singapore were classified according to the Rothgang-Wendt Typology. Indicators about their level of health expenditure, provision level and health outcome were collected from databases in WHO and OECD and compared with each other. The better cost-effective healthcare system tends to have state regulation, state provision with state or societal financing. This study provides lessons for the ideal healthcare configuration and advances research in linking typology to healthcare performance.
