Analyzing the Special Problems of Providing Quality Care to Minority Patients


Few studies looking at the causes of racial and ethnic disparities in health care have examined the problem at the physician or practice level. Using the nationally representative Community Tracking Study Physician Survey, researchers will look at what physician- and practice-related factors are associated with lower- or higher-quality care for minority patients. The findings will not only inform policymakers about the best ways to allocate resources to reduce disparities, but also possibly influence the design of pay-for-performance programs in minority communities.
