Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Iowa, and Connecticut are the top-ranked states according to The Commonwealth Fund’s 2020 Scorecard on State Health System Performance, which assesses all 50 states and the District of Columbia on more than 45 measures of access to health care, quality of care, service use and costs of care, health outcomes, and income-based health care disparities.
The 2020 Scorecard offers the latest available federal data on the state of the U.S. health system before it headed into the most severe public health crisis and economic collapse in modern times. It also highlights health system weaknesses that have left the U.S. far less prepared than other high-income countries to cope with public health threats like COVID-19.
