The United States ranks among the best in the world in terms of health care, with the nation ranked at No. 1 on the annual Global Health Care Competitiveness Index, according to a report released by the World Health Organization.
The United Kingdom, France and Spain, which ranked fourth, were also included.
The rankings were based on the percentage of people with a health care service covered by a national health insurance program, such as Medicare, Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
The index is designed to gauge progress in a country’s health care system and is based on data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.
The report ranks countries on six metrics: access to care, quality of care, access to health information and the proportion of people covered by health insurance, according a press release from the WHO.
It ranks a country based on three measures: health system efficiency, quality and access to primary care.
The U.S. ranked second overall, at 50.9 percent.
The country’s ranking came as President Donald Trump announced the end of Obamacare, which he said would be replaced by a new plan.
The plan was to offer a tax credit to help low-income people afford coverage and improve access to medical care.
