Just how good is hospital care in the US, compared to other similar countries? The Health System Tracker by Peterson-KFF (Kaiser Family Foundation) provides trends among countries through 2020 or most recent year available. Topics include mortality rates, treatment outcomes, access, maternal deaths, hospitalization for chronic illnesses, number of C-sections, patient safety such as post-op complications for hip and knee replacements, post-operative sepsis after abdominal surgery; and medication and lab errors. With a few exceptions, the United States does not fare as well as comparable countries. Post-op sepsis after abdominal surgery, and 30-day mortality for heart attacks and strokes are lower in the U.S. than in comparable countries. Read the full report updated September 2021.
