US healthcare ranks last among 11 developed nations

Los Angeles Times, June 17, 2014
Despite having the costliest care, the U.S. ranks last among 11 industrialized countries on healthcare quality and access, according to a new report. The analysis by the Commonwealth Fund published Monday ranked the United Kingdom first overall, even though its per-capita health spending is less than half that of the U.S. The other top-ranked countries were Switzerland and Sweden. France and Canada were just above the U.S. at the bottom of the rankings. Researchers said the U.S. was hurt by a lack of access to primary care and inefficiencies in the healthcare system overall.
