U.S. State Health Systems Performance

We have been told how our health care system needs to be overhauled. Here are the rankings for the state of Minnesota. You can view the complete stats here, http://bwnt.businessweek.com/interactive_reports/state_health_performance/?campaign_id=yhoo
Here is how we rank,

As a state we rank 11th out of fifty states and the District of Columbia.

For access to health care we rank 9th.

For quality we rank 12th.

For avoidable hospital use and costs we rank 10th.

Our equity ranking is 38th. This could use some improvement.

And our healthy lives ranking is 7th.

Kind of makes me think that things are not nearly as bad as we are being told.
