Figure 1-1. Overall reliability of the U.S. health system: Percentage of recommended care delivered

A pie chart captioned 'Overall reliability' is divided into a red section (45%) and a green section (55%). Two arrows point from the green section to two bar graphs. The first bar graph is captioned 'Reliability by type of care' and shows the percentage of recommended care delivered for acute care (53.5%), chronic care (56.1%), and preventive care (54.9%). The second bar graph is captioned 'Reliability by function of care' and shows the percentage of recommended care delivered for screening (52.2%), diagnosis (55.7%), treatment (57.5%), and follow-up (58.5%).
