Something to think about in the wake of the Commonwealth Fund Report...

Link to the story

In a region where there are more hospitals and more medical schools than almost anywhere in the country, we have to wonder why Chicago ranks 215 of 306 in health care quality, cost, rates of uninsured, preventive care and preventive hospitalizations in the report released by the Commonwealth Fund this week

Our national leadership in lack of investment in public health coupled with the very limited amount of coordinated care across silos of institutions (hospitals and community based) are surely largely to blame.  Health and Medicine is convening groups to develop meaningful partnerships and commitment to public health that will address many of these indicators.
