Filling the need for trusted information on national health issues

How do healthcare prices and use in the U.S. compare to other countries?

This chart collection compares health care prices and rates of utilization in the United States to those of other wealthy countries. Despite having fewer office visits and shorter average hospital stays, the U.S. overall spends twice as much per person on healthcare than do comparable countries.

The analysis is part of the Peterson-Kaiser Health System Tracker, an online information hub dedicated to monitoring and assessing the performance of the U.S. health system.
