The United States spends nearly twice as much as the average #OECD country on #healthcare. BUT have you ever wondered how good is the #quality of healthcare in America? (1/10) #ph260720 #healthcarespending #qualityofcare
A 2006 @RANDCorporation research conducted on representative sample of the U.S. population found that on average adults in the United States received only about half of recommended care. Half! Shocking? Disappointed? (2/10) #ph260720 #qualityofcare
That's not all. Quality of care was similar in all 12 of the #metropolitan areas studied. For example, it doesn't matter whether you live in #Boston or #Miami. You're getting the recommended care ONLY HALF the time. Getting frustrated? I already am! 🤬 (3/10) #ph260720 #quality Figure 1. Metropolitan Area...
Furthermore, #quality varied substantially across conditions. For example, people with #highbloodpressure received about 65 percent of recommended care whereas persons with #alcoholdependence received about 11 percent. (4/10) #ph260720 Figure 3. Quality of Care V...
If the U.S. #healthcare was an #AppleiPhone, would you like to buy the phone that works half the time only? or it would sometimes work 11%? NO WAY!!! #SteveJobs would throw it out the window in no time. (5/10) #ph260720 #healthcare #quality https://www.theverge.com/20...
And what if I told you having an #healthinsurance in the United States does not necessarily guarantee you access to good-quality care, would you believe me? 🤔 (6/10) #ph260720 #insurance #qualityofcare
Hold on! The research found that those with #nohealthinsurance received 54 percent of recommended care, compared with 55 percent enrolled in @medicaid, 57 percent in @Medicare, and 54 percent in #privateinsurance plans. So who says we need private insurance? 🙄 (7/10) #ph260720 Figure 5. All Groups Face G...
Over time, #poorquality care will lead to poor #patientoutcomes which are largely "preventable harm". According to @WHO as many as 4 in 10 patients are harmed in healthcare settings. (8/10) #ph260720 #quality #patientsafety who.int/news-room/fact…
So what's needed to improve the quality of health care in the United States? (9/10) #ph260720 #healthcare #qualityimprovement
YOU as a '#patient' can do your part in improving the quality by playing an active #advocate role in obtaining your care, working hand-in-hand with your #physician. (10/10) @PLAN4ZERO @AHRQ #ph260720 #patientsafety
