WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: Wisconsin's health system named among the best in the nation
Another study shows that Wisconsin's health system is among the best in the nation. The Badger State's overall health performance is ranked seventh by the Commonwealth Fund, a New York group that fosters health policy research. The survey looks at 42 factors -- including the cost, outcomes, and quality of health care, and how easily people can gain access to the system. Wisconsin improved on 11 of the 42 measures since the group put out its last survey five years ago.
