Minnesota Ranks No. 1 for Access, Quality and Outcomes

[MMA News Now, May 1, 2014] Minnesota once again is the top state in the nation for health care access, quality and outcomes, according to a report by The Commonwealth Fund, which conducts research on health care policy reform.

The report, “Aiming Higher: Results from a Scorecard on State Health System Performance, 2014,” takes a look at each state plus the District of Columbia and ranks them based on 42 health care measures in the following areas: access; prevention and treatment; avoidable hospital use and costs; healthy lives; and equity.

“This ranking is really something for Minnesota and Minnesota physicians to celebrate,” said Janet Silversmith, MMA’s director of health policy.

Minnesota also ranked highest the last time the report was published in 2009.
