Data Tools: Updated and Expanded Peterson-KFF Health System Dashboard Now Available

From the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF):

Newly updated and expanded, the Peterson-KFF Health System Dashboard compiles data on the U.S. health system’s performance in four areas: access and affordability, health and well-being, health spending, and quality of care. Users can explore trends over time, as well as disparities and differences across demographic groups. The dashboard also includes indicators comparing health outcomes and spending in the U.S. to that of similarly large and wealthy countries.

A new companion brief situates the data in broader trends in the U.S. health system and considers how the COVID-19 pandemic may impact measures of performance and quality.


The Health System Dashboard is available on the Peterson-KFF Health System Tracker, a partnership between the Peterson Center on Healthcare and KFF that monitors the U.S. health system’s performance on key quality and cost measures.
