Person- and Family-Centered Care Chartbook Release Also Available
The AHRQ National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report chartbooks are a family of documents and tools that report trends across measures of quality and disparities covering a broad array of health care services and settings. Each of the chartbooks reports on progress made across one of the six National Quality Strategy (NQS) priorities. This month, AHRQ released the Chartbook on Person- and Family-Centered Care, highlighting improvement with particularly strong gains in patient-provider communication.
The NQS co-publishes a series of Priorities in Action with the chartbooks to promote individual organizations that are improving care in the priority areas described by the correlating chartbooks. This month’s Priority in Action features PatientsLikeMe, which leverages the natural social networks among people diagnosed with chronic, life-changing illnesses to stimulate the creation of a unique repository of patient-produced data. This data can be used by PatientsLikeMe’s partners for their clinical research and measure development efforts.
If you would like to share examples of ways that you and your organization are making efforts to align to the NQS aims, priorities, and levers, please feel free to email us atNQStrategy@ahrq.hhs.gov.
