Health Equity of Care Report

February 10, 2016 – It’s well known that significant disparities exist in health care outcomes in Minnesota; however, first time analysis indicates significant disparities exist across patient experiences of care as well, according to the 2015 Health Equity of Care Report.

The second-year report, which was released today by MN Community Measurement (MNCM), deepens our understanding of health care disparities in Minnesota with the addition of two major features: four patient experience measures segmented by race and Hispanic ethnicity; and comparable medical group reporting of the five quality measures included in last year’s report.

The Health Equity of Care Report: Stratification of Health Care Performance Results in Minnesota by Race, Hispanic Ethnicity, Preferred Language and Country of Origin presents data collected by medical groups using best practices and shines the spotlight on areas for improvement that exist in Minnesota.
