McNeil shares the facts
A group of us hospital administrators heard an excellent talk this morning by Dwight McNeil, the new MA Assistant Commissioner for Health Data Analytics in the state's Division of Health Care Finance and Policy (shown in picture). As you might expect, he showed us some interesting data, including the three charts above.
We in Massachusetts tend to think we live in Lake Wobegon, always being above average, especially when it comes to health care delivery. Not so, as demonstrated quite clearly here. We look good versus the US as a whole, but not so against the other New England states, and worse so versus the best in class.
