2011 National Healthcare Disparities and Quality Reports

2011 National Healthcare Disparities and Quality Reports



2011 National Healthcare Quality & Disparities Reports

For the ninth year in a row, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has produced the National Healthcare Quality Report (NHQR) and the National Healthcare Disparities Report (NHDR). These reports measure trends in effectiveness of care, patient safety, timeliness of care, patient centeredness, and efficiency of care. New this year are chapters on care coordination, health system infrastructure. The reports present, in chart form, the latest available findings on quality of and access to health care.
The National Healthcare Quality Report tracks the health care system through quality measures, such as the percentage of heart attack patients who received recommended care when they reached the hospital or the percentage of children who received recommended vaccinations. The National Healthcare Disparities Report summarizes health care quality and access among various racial, ethnic, and income groups and other priority populations, such as residents of rural areas and people with disabilities.
Print versions of the reports will be available in late April or early May. Users needing assistance should contact Doreen Bonnett at (301) 427-1899 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting (301) 427-1899 end_of_the_skype_highlighting or Doreen.Bonnett@ahrq.hhs.gov.
