Assessing the effectiveness of health systems is a relevant issue due to the recognition of health as the main human value, as well as the evidence of the impact of public health indicators on the socio-economic development of a state or region. Annually, analysts compile inter-country health ratings. The Most Efficient Health Care (Bloomberg financial and economic information agency), the countries ranking according to the level of medicine by the Health Care Index for Country (Numbeo) and the Euro Health Consumer Index (Health Consumer Powerhouse) are among the most respected countries in the world. Bloomberg Agency also compiles a rating of the healthiest countries (Global Health Index): in our opinion, this rating is the result of all ratings of health system performance, because the main goal of any country in the field of health is to maintain public health. According to The Most Efficient Health Care rating in 2018, Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, Italy, and South Korea were in the top 5. Russia ranked 53rd of 56 in this ranking. Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan are the leaders in the latest published Health Care Index for Country ranking. Russia is on the 60th place out of 84. The leaders in 2019 according to the ranking of the healthiest countries (Global Health Index) are Spain, Italy, Iceland, Japan; Russia ranks 95th (of 169 countries). According to the Euro Health Consumer Index (EHCI), the leaders of 2018 are Switzerland, the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark (the rating does not include Russia). The methodology of each of the health system performance ratings is different, however, each rating is a guideline and subject of analysis for countries in order to adjust the implementation of state health policy. For this reason, the study and analysis of rating calculation methods and the assessment of the dynamics of countries' positions in them is an urgent task of modern scientific research, which as a result should contribute to improving the efficiency of the health system in individual countries.
