Health at a Glance: Europe 2018 presents comparative analyses of the health status of EU citizens and the performance of the health systems of the 28 EU Member States, 5 candidate countries and 3 EFTA countries. It is the first step in the State of Health in the EU cycle of knowledge brokering. This publication has two parts. Part I comprises two thematic chapters, the first focusing on the need for concerted efforts to promote better mental health, the second outlining possible strategies for reducing wasteful spending in health. In Part II, the most recent trends in key indicators of health status, risk factors and health spending are presented, together with a discussion of progress in improving the effectiveness, accessibility and resilience of European health systems.

The number of hospital beds provides an indication of the resources available for delivering services to inpatients in hospitals. The influence of the supply of hospital beds on hospital admission rates has been widely documented, confirming that a greater supply generally leads to greater admissions (Rohmer’s law that a “built bed is a filled bed”).
