    Swedish pics
    OK, call me corny, but some nice shots of Swedish providers, insurance cards, etc might be nice on the home page. Perhaps a panorama of Stockholm or some suitable city/town would help the visitor to your page have more of a cultural
    "immersion" when visiting the site. Overall, the integration of pages is well done. In some cases, you may find moving info from one page to another actually helps make the final product more tightly integrated. I recommend keeping GDP stuff and data on spending under the financing page.

    Overall, a truly impressive product. With a few small modifications this will truly be a model wiki!

    Focus more on utilizatinon and health measures
    You might share the financing stuff with Kevin--your page should be more focused on utilization and outcomes measures (dr visits, prevention, prenatal care, etc) rather than GDP stuff, which is a better fit for financing.

    Great data, but place it in context
    This is a wonderful list. Alas, it should be more of a narrative. Weave the info into sentences, and where possible, illustrate with charts and graphs.

    Great job! My principal recommendation is to expand on the differences between the US and Sweden...great charts here, but you need to tell the reader what they mean--what's the take home message here? Also, how much is the tax burden? Are these local (county) taxes based on income? Why did they choose to structure their financing system based on local governments rather than at the national (one size fits all) level?

    Great use of core indicators...You may have a future in health system finance ;)

    Some of the first section on the organization of the system might actually be a better fit for the financing section--this part is more on the organization of health care delivery...

    Great detail, but a couple of questions
    This is first rate, but I have a couple of questions. I think this page is where some discussion of how patients obtain care--either through local docs in private practice, or through community clinics, etc. might be useful. Ditto for the regionalizaton of health care services....are specialty services, imaging, etc widely diffused or regionalized? How many hospitals in Sweden?

    Impressive detail
    I love the information on this page, but I might recommend a better way of citing than just the link1, link2, etc. Embed the citation within the text. For example, "delays in treatment" could be a link that takes you to data on that. It serves as both an underscored visual reminder to the reader of what key terms and issues are, and it points em to where you found the original data. I think a narrative (sentence, paragraph) approach to introducing the page and each subsection would be better than bulleted lists, but the information you have amassed is really impressive!
