New research aims to improve treatment of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases

October 14, 2017

Easy-to-read data charts indicate current strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for improvement for each state. Health leaders, insurers, providers, researchers and consumers can use the State Snapshots data to examine the extent of health care quality and disparities in their states and take steps to address gaps in quality care and access to services.

The 2010 State Snapshots summarize health care data by:

??? Overall health care quality; ??? Type of care (preventive, acute and chronic);??? Treatment setting (hospital, ambulatory care, nursing home and home health) ;??? Five clinical conditions (cancer, diabetes, heart disease, maternal and child health and respiratory diseases); and??? Strongest and weakest quality measures, as compared with other states.
