U.S. Health System Among Least Efficient Before Obamacare

The U.S. health-care system was among the least efficient in the developed world two years before major changes from Obamacare began to go into effect.

America’s health-care system ranked 44th of 51 nations assessed by Bloomberg, in terms of per person spending, life expectancy and health-care cost as a percentage of the economy. It’s an improvement from 46th of 48 last year, yet Serbia, Turkey and China still scored better.
