Child and adolescent health care quality and disparities: are we making progress?
The authors sought to examine trends over time in health care quality and disparities by race, Hispanic ethnicity, income, insurance, gender, rurality, and special health care needs. Using data from the 2011 National Healthcare Quality Report and Naitonal Healthcare Disparities Reprot, they found that there was some progress in health care quality and reducing disparities in children's health care quality from 2000 to 2009, but opportunities for targeting improvement strategies remain.
