The Commonwealth Fund's Tracking Health System Performance program
The grades for America’s healthcare system are out, and the results are dismal, according to The Commonwealth Fund’s 2019 Scorecard on State Health System Performance, released Wednesday. 
The Scorecard, according to The Commonwealth Fund, reveals that most states are losing ground on key measures related to life expectancy as premature deaths from suicide, alcohol, and drug overdose continue to increase. Among other findings, the Scorecard found that healthcare costs are placing an increasing financial burden on families across the nation. 
Reporting our lead story during the next edition of Talk-Ten-Tuesdays will be David C. Radley, a senior scientist for The Commonwealth Fund's Tracking Health System Performance program. Dr. Radley and his team develop national, state, and sub-state regional analyses on healthcare system performance and related insurance and care system market structure. He is also a senior study director at Westat, a research firm that supports the Scorecard project.
