Medicare spending was the lowest in Hawaii, but the state scored the highest for health care quality in the nation, according to new data by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

“The hospitals and providers can be proud of what they’ve done. Their efforts to be conservative in the use of high-cost testing and treatments are demonstrated in this study,” said Dr. Chris Flanders, executive director of the Hawaii Medical Association, representing 1,100 physicians statewide. “It’s not all doom and gloom in the health care world.”
