Analysis of a multimillions of dollars of new research shows how to improve our nation’s health care delivery system.

In a new study released Tuesday, researchers at the National Institutes of Health and the University of Wisconsin at Madison found that using a single metric that measures the effectiveness of different interventions, such as a drug, could be a powerful way to improve the health of the nation.

“It’s an interesting study, because we know that when we have a high proportion of people who are obese, we have problems with our ability to get health care,” said lead researcher Michael R. Belsky, a professor of medicine and director of the Center for Clinical and Health Sciences at the University at Buffalo.

In other words, there is less opportunity for healthy people to be treated, and people who need help are often less likely to seek it, Belski said.

“We have a lot of information that says, you need to treat people appropriately, and that’s an important thing to do.”

So the study analyzed data from nearly 800,000 people from across the United States, comparing their health care access to obesity rates to what was happening across the country at the same time.

They also looked at whether the country was doing better or worse with different measures of health.

The results were stunning.

The health of Americans living in states with a high percentage of obese people was almost identical to that of those in states where people were obese.

And the results were even more dramatic for states that had lower obesity rates.

What’s more, when the researchers looked at people who were younger and less physically active than the people living in more physically active states, they found that obesity was more likely to increase health care costs.

“I don’t think it’s a coincidence that we see health care expenditures that are higher in states that are less physically demanding,” said Belsker.

“It’s not that we’re not doing well in terms of getting people health care.”

So, why do states with higher obesity rates have lower health care spending?

One possible explanation is that states with more obese people are less likely in many cases to have a public health care provider with expertise in the field of obesity care.

And while obesity can have health impacts, obesity rates are not necessarily correlated with health outcomes.

The researchers said this study provides evidence for why states with the highest rates of obesity in the country should take care of their residents better.

It also suggests that if states and cities are to better address obesity, they must consider their policies and services when making changes.

“There is a lot that we do need to know about the role of obesity, and I think that it’s important to recognize that there are different ways of doing it,” Belsko said.
