Just above Tennesee and Alabama.

The Commonwealth Fund put out state rankings, based on a Scorecard of Health System Performance. Interesting data.

California’s profile is here. And it’s not good: 39th overall. 44th in “Access.” 50th(!) in “Quality.” The national report indicates there’s a correlation: “insurance matters.” Either way you look at it, there’s a lot to work on here.

We do well on the “Healthy Lives” indicator (3rd), although that may be related to the relatively younger mix of California’s population.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
