Health Care Quality: How Does Your State Compare?

AHRQ State Snapshots

The quality of health care varies widely across the nation. State Snapshots, an interactive tool from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), uses more than 250 statistical measures to offer state-by-state summaries of health care quality. The tool, based on AHRQ's 2015 National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report, analyzes quality in three dimensions: type of care (such as preventive or chronic), setting of care (such as nursing homes or hospitals), and clinical areas (such as care for patients with cancer or diabetes).
