Workshop on Measuring and Reporting the Quality of Health Care for Minority Populations


As researchers uncover more evidence of pervasive racial disparities in health, policy experts are beginning the search for ways to ensure that minority Americans have access to good-quality care. One barrier to improving quality is the lack of consensus about whether to monitor specifically the health care provided to minority populations and, if so, how best to measure it. The National Quality Forum (NQF) will address this problem by convening national experts in minority health and health care quality for a two-day workshop to develop quality-of-care guidelines and policy recommendations. Project results will inform upcoming NQF initiatives and establish a precedent for public- and private-sector activities in this area.
