What is a health-system?
"A health system is the sum total of all the organizations, institutions and resources whose primary purpose is to improve health. A health system needs staff, funds, information, supplies, transport, communications and overall guidance and direction. And it needs to provide services that are responsive and financially fair, while treating people decently." - World Health Organization
Health-systems include, but are not limited to, hospitals, health maintenance organizations, long term care facilities, and home care.
