We have all seen the statistics. The US has the most expensive healthcare system among the highly developed nations of the world (more than double the average cost per person / year). And despite committing almost 18% of our GDP annually to healthcare, we are not achieving the comparable results. Our life expectancy is about a year less than the average among our international peers (significantly less than many nations). Our infant mortality rates are significantly higher than comparable nations and our children are becoming increasingly obese.#AffordableCareAct #Articles #WhitePapers #ACA #AcademyofArchitectureforHealth #AAH
