Summary
The United States spends significantly more per person on health care than any other country but the evidence shows that care is often poor and inappropriate. Despite expenditures upwards of 1.9 trillion dollars?a cost that grows substantially every year?health care services remain fragmented and uncoordinated, and more than 46 million people are uninsured. Why can?t America, with its vast array of resources, sophisticated technologies, superior medical research and educational institutions, and talented health care professionals, produce higher quality care and better outcomes?.
