New National Reports on Quality, Disparities
Every year since 2003, the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has released national report cards on the progress of the US health care system in improving quality and reducing racial and ethnic health disparities. We just learned of the release of the 2006 reports -- didn't see reports anywhere. These are good benchmark reports and worth reviewing by folks interested in either/both policy areas.
