Scorecard on State Health System Performance
The Commonwealth Fund has released a scorecard judging each state's health system performance. Wisconsin ranks in the top tier in the overall ranking, in access ranking, in prevention and treatment, and in it's healthy lives ranking. Wisconsin takes a step down to the second tier in the areas of Equity (our lowest ranking), and in the avoidable hospital use/costs ranking. Wisconsin's overall ranking has moved up from 11 in 2007 to 10 today.
