National Healthcare Quality And Disparities Report

The 2017 National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report assesses the performance of the U.S. healthcare system and identifies areas of strengths and weaknesses, as well as disparities, for access to healthcare and quality of healthcare. Quality is described according to six priorities: patient safety, person-centered care, care coordination, effective treatment, healthy living, and care affordability. The document is based on more than 250 measures of quality and disparities covering a broad array of healthcare services and settings.
