Health Care Quality Improving, Some Americans Still Lack Access

AHRQ recently released the 2013 National Healthcare Quality Report and National Healthcare Disparities Report. These two reports show that the overall quality of health care slowly improved from 2000 to 2011, yet Americans still received only 70 percent of recommended medical services. The reports also show that hospitals are leading the movement to improve quality, as the majority of hospital quality measures showed significant improvement. Despite these improvements, quality of care worsened for measures on diabetic checkups, Pap smears, maternal deaths at delivery, and receipt of asthma preventive care medicine.
