U.S. Healthcare Scores Badly

According to a recent report, the U.S. healthcare system is not improving much despite the fact that the cost of care is higher than ever. The U.S. scored a 64 out of 100 overall for key measures of healthcare performance that compared the nation as a whole with high-performing regions in the U.S., as well as against other countries.

The nation's overall score has declined slightly since the last such report in 2008. The scorecard measures the U.S. healthcare system across 42 indicators of healthcare quality, access, efficiency, equity, and healthy lives, and compares U.S. averages to rates achieved by the top 10% of states, regions, health plans, hospitals, other providers, and other top-performing countries.

  1. I wonder do you have the statistics from each state? I am just curious which states are better than others.

Do you support the idea of government-run health care?
