ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a report from the Commonwealth Fund which found that despite spending more on healthcare than 18 other countries, the U.S. ranks behind them all in preventing premature deaths and rates only marginally better across a spectrum of other measures. Overall, performance did not improve from 2006 and gaps in a number of different categories have only grown. The U.S. showed improvement only in addressing racial disparities and bettering how paperwork and procedures flow through the healthcare system.
