Improving the Delivery of Effective Care to Minorities, Phase 3


This is the third and final phase of a project to investigate the underuse of effective medical services in minority communities and test interventions to improve the delivery of care. The investigators are targeting four major conditions: breast cancer, recurrent stroke, hypertension, and prematurity of newborns. In the first phase, project staff, working with experts in clinical medicine, developed evidence-based, consensus guidelines defining how effective treatments should be used and what constitutes underuse of care. Focusing on northern Manhattan, the project team in the second phase assessed the magnitude and causes of underuse for each condition and designed interventions to improve the delivery of appropriate care. In the third phase, the investigators will evaluate the impact their interventions have had in Harlem. The project will be cofunded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the NIH National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities.
