Key Takeaways:

King Charles has cancer and appears to have been diagnosed and treated quickly.

Commoners in the U.K. often see delays in diagnosis and treatment of cancers and other disease states and conditions. Some of this is worse in the U.K. and can be blamed on poor planning.  But many other developed systems see delays in treatment and more limited services and technology as well.

Overall, though, other developed nations have better outcomes because they offer universal access.

America does offer swift access and treatment if you have good insurance and can afford it.

But many Americans are underinsured or uninsured and have limited access to the healthcare system and face the same lack of treatment in the U.K. and other nations.

America could develop a system where everyone gains affordable access and we continue to offer an on-demand, high-tech approach to healthcare.  It would also save over time.
