Health care report not good

To the Editor,
The Commonwealth Fund, a philanthropic foundation, has recently published another report on our health care system, and it doesn’t look good. The United States ranked dead last when compared to 10 other high income countries.  The study looked at access to care, care process, administrative efficiency, equity, and health care outcomes.  Dead last!  It is estimated that 40,000 Americans die each year because of lack of insurance and poor access to care.  They know what dead last means.
