Obamacare is the most important reform in the American healthcare system since 1965. Its introduction provoked unprecedented controversy between republicans and democrats. Whilst much remains to be done, it has already helped extend health insurance coverage, change the way the healthcare system is funded, establish federal regulations for private insurance, and above all, promote innovation and experiments to modernize the healthcare delivery. Seen from France, it is interesting to follow the array of ongoing experiments in the United States intended to modernize the healthcare system: adaptations to the payment systems for hospitals and doctors and organizational innovations to improve healthcare delivery.
