The United States ranks last overall, despite spending far more of its gross domestic product on healthcare. The U.S. ranks last on access to care, administrative efficiency, equity, and health care outcomes, but second on measures of care process. Four features distinguish top performing countries from the United States: they provide for universal coverage and remove cost barriers they invest in primary care systems to ensure that high-value services are equitably available in
