2009 State Snapshots

Slide presentation describes the 2009 State Snapshots.

Text Description is below the image.

  • Disparities are common and not improving.

This slide contains two bar graphs comparing the disparities in health care quality and disparities in health care access among various demographic groups.

Notes:

Disparities in Quality: Blacks received worse care than Whites for 50 percent of core measures (10 of 20). Blacks received better quality care than Whites for 15 percent of core measures (3 of 20). Asians received worse care than Whites for 30 percent of core measures (6 of 20) and better care for 40 percent (8 of 20). American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) received worse care than Whites for 45 percent of core measures (9 of 20) and better care for 25 percent (5 of 20). Hispanics received worse quality care than non-Hispanic Whites for 70 percent of core measures (14 of 20) and better care for 20 percent (4 of 20). Poor people received worse care than high-income people for 75 percent of core measures (15 of 20) and better care for 5 percent (1 of 20).

Disparities in Access: Uninsurance was the single strongest predictor of quality of care based on multivariate analyses on selected core measures. Blacks, Asians, and AI/ANs had worse access to care than Whites for one-third of core measures. Hispanics had worse access than non-Hispanic Whites for 83 percent of core measures. Poor people had worse access to care than high-income people for all 6 core measures.
