Massachusetts Health Care Information
Massachusetts sets the bar very high for the rest of the nation by having the 5th highest public health ranking in the U.S. The state has the highest insured population, and very low rates for obesity and tobacco use. They have a superior amount of primary care physicians available in proportion to the state’s population. This allows residents to receive efficient early prenatal care. In fact, the state boasts the 4th highest use of early parental care in the country. All of these public health advantages contribute to make Massachusetts an ideal health care setting. But like many other states, they have been experiencing funding cuts and shortages that have had an impact on the extent to which they can maintain and improve public health conditions.
Massachusetts’s strength lies in its high insurance rate, and the Health Connector website makes it easy for state residents to find an insurance plan that works for them. However, insurance premiums have been gradually rising along with the costs of copayments and ER visits. This has resulted in some employers eliminating coverage for their workers.
Recent budget proposals look promising for the state as a whole. Many community programs will be funded through the proposals, including Environmental Health, Vital Records, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, and Food Protection services. A new campaign has also been put in effect called the Act FRESH Campaign, which increases access to affordable nutritious foods and helps create safe public spaces for residents to exercise. Many organizations and associations have contributed to this effort, and together they have created many proposals to change zoning legislation to optimize land use for fitness activities.
Due to the high standards for public health in Massachusetts, many employers expect their medical personnel to be ACLS certified. Certification is simple, and an online course is very convenient for busy medical professionals. You may certify through this website, or by visiting one of the training locations listed below.
