Affordable, quality health care. For everyone.

What Would Happen If Health Care in Your State Improved?

The Commonwealth Fund’s Scorecard on State Health System Performance, 2015, assessed states on 42 indicators of health care access, quality, costs, and outcomes. Use this interactive tool to see the gains that your state could achieve by improving its performance to the level of better-performing states, as well as the losses that would result if your state failed to sustain its performance. You can also see the impact of reaching for a goal that is even better than the current best state’s performance.
