Sheng-Chia Chung and colleagues report in The Lancet that, in their comparison of short-term outcomes in patients with acute myocardial infarction, unadjusted 30-day mortality was more than a third higher in the UK than in Sweden during 2004–10. They suggest that this difference is due largely to the divergent speed of implementation of policy initiatives to improve care. Chung and colleagues compared the UK data with those for Sweden because the two countries have similar health systems for, and spending on, acute myocardial infarction, but diffusion of evidence-based changes to practice and new technologies has been notably quicker in Sweden
