AHRQ’s Chartbook on Health Care for Blacks, derived from the National Health Care Quality and Disparities Report, summarizes trends in health care disparities by race related to access, as well as priorities identified in the Heckler Report (the 1985 landmark report on minorities’ health status) and the National Quality Strategy (HHS’ annual report on improving health care quality). Key findings include increases in suicide and mental health disparities, improvements in access to care since the Affordable Care Act, and poorer quality of care related to person-centeredness and care coordination.
This Black Health Care chartbook is part of a family of documents and tools that support the National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report (QDR). The QDR includes annual reports to Congress mandated in the Healthcare Research and Quality Act of 1999 (P.L. 106-129). This chartbook includes a summary of trends across measures of Black health care from the QDR and figures illustrating select measures of Black health care. A PowerPoint version is also available that users can download for presentations.
