Research Activities, August 2011, No. 372

Mining for specific data on health care quality and disparities in the United States? It's an easy process with the NHQRDRnet online query system by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, which features data from the 2010 National Healthcare Quality Report and National Healthcare Disparities Report.

At the State and national level, you'll find quality-of-care data on clinical conditions ranging from asthma and diabetes to heart disease and cancer. You can review data by specific age groups as well as by race, ethnicity, income, and education. Using NHQRDRnet's search tool, you can locate data tables based on selected words, chapters, or type of table.

To get started on AHRQ's NHQRDRnet system, go to: National Healthcare Quality & Disparities Reports .
