  • U.S. Health Care Ranked Worst in the Developed World

    he U.S. health care system has been subject to heated debate over the past decade, but one thing that has remained consistent is the level of performance, which has been ranked as the worst among industrialized nations for the fifth time, according to the 2014 Commonwealth Fund survey 2014. The U.K. ranked best with Switzerland following a close second.

    The Commonwealth Fund report compares the U.S. with 10 other nations: France, Australia, Germany, Canada, Sweden, New Zealand, Norway, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the U.K. were all judged to be superior based on various factors. These include quality of care, access to doctors and equity throughout the country. Results of the study rely on data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the World Health Organization and interviews from physicians and patients.

    Although the U.S. has the most expensive health care system in the world, the nation ranks lowest in terms of “efficiency, equity and outcomes,” according to the report. One of the most piercing revelations is that the high rate of expenditure for insurance is not commensurate to the satisfaction of patients or quality of service. High out-of-pocket costs and gaps in coverage “undermine efforts in the U.S. to improve care coordination,” the report summarized.

      Let me guess, another socialist fetish group somewhere rating healthcare as "better" whenever it's "free"

                      No need to guess: you're allergic to actual research, facts and data.

                          Why is it so difficult to understand, healthcare is not 'free' in any healthcare system. We simply choose to pay twice as much for less.

                            Comparing how the rest of the world does it really isn't a good argument.

                              I would love for our politicians to have an actual informed debate over this topic. However based upon who’s running we already know the topic will descend into a food fight.
