Developing an Agenda for Improving Health Care Quality for American Indians and Alaska Natives


Disparities in the health status of American Indians and Alaska Natives (AIANs) relative to whites persist, despite efforts of the federal Indian Health Service to improve the care provided in local communities. This project will help researchers, policymakers, and health advocates develop an agenda for improving health care in AIAN communities. The project team will convene a conference to review what is currently known about the state of AIAN health care, discuss the application of quality-of-care surveys to these populations, and develop recommendations for improving quality. Results from this work will be particularly useful in informing the Fund's future efforts to improve the health care delivered to these populations.
