Swiss health system was the most interesting one for the US to look into.

swissinfo.ch: Why does the US system not work?
"The prices of everything are high – medicines, doctors' salaries and hospital stays.
There must also be substantial inefficiencies in the system partly due to the lack of healthcare coverage. Those without insurance don't go to the doctors or go late, thus generating even greater costs.
Prevention is also a priority. One of the biggest challenges in the US is obesity; the number of cases of diabetes and cardiovascular illnesses are a very heavy burden on the(United States Health) system."says Thomas Zeltner, director of the Federal Health Office, Switzerland/
