Abstract:
Overall, four major trends emerge from our analysis of the Scorecard results: (1) Rising death rates, high levels of obesity, and gaps in care are pressing challenges for states. (2) Regional differences in performance persist, as do within-state disparities. (3) Many states are not getting good value for their health care dollars. (4) States made progress in areas that were the target of efforts to improve.
