AHRQ Publication Highlights Improvements in Health Care Among Women
The quality of health care for women between 2002 and 2013 improved in several important areas, including treatment effectiveness, patient safety and healthy living, according to AHRQ’s Chartbook on Women’s Health Care, part of the agency’s 2014 National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report. Researchers evaluated women’s care by looking at hundreds of performance measures, a process that shows to what extent treatments have followed recommended best practices and whether desired health outcomes have been achieved. AHRQ’s Chartbook on Women’s Health Care complements other AHRQ healthy living resources, such as Women: Stay Healthy at 50+ and Women: Stay Healthy at Any Age.
