The series spotlights recent Federal initiatives to improve care, quality, and data and demonstrates improvement in each of the six NQS priority areas. The brief aligns with AHRQ’s Chartbook on Healthy Living, that draws on data from the Agency’s 2015 National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report (2015 National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report (QDR).
