In a recent report, that was generated by a publication from Commonwealth Fund, the healthcare system and their ranking depending upon the benefits they include, how many number of beneficiaries got positively affected and the output was revealed, that stunned everyone.
In the ranking, United States was at the last out of the eleven respective countries, it failed to achieve its goal, of the best healthcare system, results like it did same in the year 2007, 2006, and 2014.
In the year 2017, another report came out, and in it, the rank of the US’s healthcare system was the same.
But with the ranking report, that was published by the World Health Organization, called World’s 100 best health systems, an astonishing output came.
