Australia’s healthcare system has been ranked second in a global study

Australia's healthcare system has been ranked second in a global study by The Commonwealth Fund which ranked the quality of healthcare systems based on 72 indicators.   The study compared the health care systems of 11 high-income countries to measure performance in five key areas: care process, access, administrative efficiency, equity and health care outcomes.

While Australia's health service ranked well for safety, efficiency and health care outcomes for patients and was among the top ranked countries on issues such as preventative measures and patient engagement, it ranked poorly on equity.
