Every year, the Commonwealth Fund’s Scorecard on State Health System Performance uses the most recent data to assess how well the health care system is working in every U.S. state. Rankings are based on 58 measures of health care access, quality, use of services, costs, health disparities, reproductive care and women’s health, and health outcomes.
This year, Rhode Island moved up to 4th in the nation (previously 6th), with exceptional performance in categories such as reproductive and women's health (2nd in nation), access and affordability (3rd in nation), prevention and treatment (3rd in nation), and racial and ethnic health equity (4th in nation). We're proud of the work that has helped us achieve these results, and look forward to our continued progress ahead! See Rhode Island's results here.
