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.
