Quality of Health Care in the United States: A Chartbook, Sheila Leatherman, Ph.D. and Douglas McCarthy, The Commonwealth Fund, April 2002
This first-of-its-kind portrait of the state of health care quality in the United States documents serious gaps in quality on many crucial dimensions of care: lack of preventive care, medical mistakes, substandard care for chronic conditions, and health care disparities. The chartbook is based on more than 150 published studies and reports about quality of care.
