New Animated Video Provides an Engaging Look at the Cost and Quality of the Nation’s Health System

A new animated video on the Peterson-Kaiser Health System Tracker provides an engaging “check-up” of the nation’s health system, addressing questions of whether it’s getting better or worse and how it compares to other countries.

Health of the Healthcare System, produced by the Kaiser Family Foundation, draws on the most up-to-date, reliable data to offer an easy-to-understand portrait of cost, quality and access to health care in the United States. Julie Rovner, a veteran health reporter formerly of NPR now working for Kaiser Health News, narrates the four-minute video.
