US Healthcare System Falling Short After COVID

US Healthcare System Falling Short After COVID 626 352 kupplinadmin

Looking back at the American healthcare system things seem to be getting better. People are now living longer lives than they were a quarter-century ago. The illness burden, which includes preventable deaths and disability, has decreased. There are fewer unnecessary hospitalizations and healthcare mistakes. But as a first world country for decades, American health care has lagged that of other industrialized countries. For example, life expectancy has risen in the United States, just at a slower rate than in Europe and Asia. Although we were still behind other countries the Corona Virus outbreak made things worse. As a result of the epidemic, experts from the Kaiser Family Foundation recently warned of a “further widening of the gap” between the US and other nations.

Covid-19 would lower life expectancy in the United States, which has been stagnating in recent years due to an increase in drug overdoses and suicides. The disease burden has been rising in the United States while falling elsewhere; the Covid-19 epidemic is expected to worsen this gap. The effects of this will have a long-term impact on our healthcare system. The most basic indicator of how well a person’s health system is doing is the life expectancy. Over the last several decades, life expectancy in the developed world has gradually increased, owing largely to substantial advances in the treatment of heart disease and other cardiovascular disorders, which rank at the top of the list of causes of death in affluent countries. The epidemic has affected America’s health results, and the budget deficit is widening.
