Has access to care changed in minority communities? A study of preventable hospitalizations over time in selected States.
Basu assessed the changes in access to care in minority communities by examining the association between preventable hospitalization rates and racial/ethnic composition of the community during 1995-2005. Using HCUP data, the results indicated increases in barriers faced by minority adults in accessing primary care over time, with no similar evidence for the elderly subgroup.
