U.S. HEALTH CARE: WORST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK

 

From the link:

 

 

"Although the U.S. spends more on health care than any other country and has the highest proportion of specialist physicians, survey findings indicate that from the patients' perspective, and based on outcome indicators, the performance of American health care is severely lacking," the report says.

 

The group measured the health systems in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States, and the U.S. ranked last or near last in nearly all aspects of health access, efficiency and equality. And despite its low marks for quality care, the United States spends 17.7 percent of its GDP on healthcare—far more than any other country.

 

 

SOUTHERN STATES RANKED WORST FOR HEALTH CARE

 

From the next link:

 

 

Year after year, southern states consistently rank among the worst in the U.S. for health and wellness.

 

This is not a new trend. The rankings have changed little over the last quarter century. What’s causing residents of Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana and other southern states to live such short lives, while experiencing higher rates of cancer, diabetes and heart disease?

 

BUT LET'S NOT FORGET OKLAHOMA

 

From the link:

 

 

The quality of the state's health care came in at 48 out of 50, beating out only Arkansas and Mississippi.
