U.S. Continues to Far Outspend Other Nations on Health Care

For more than a decade, The Commonwealth Fund has analyzed data on comparative health system performance compiled annually by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

To find out more about how the U.S. compares in health care spending, utilization, and quality, read the brief and view our PowerPoint chartbook.
