Alliance releases Disparities in Care 2013 report

Using the Medicaid data from the 2012 Community Checkup, the Alliance has produced reports for medical groups showing their performance on the Community Checkup by race, ethnicity, and language. The purpose of these reports is to help providers who serve the Medicaid population – and not everyone does – better understand potential disparities within their practice. The data cannot only help them identify areas of improvement but also look at successes within the practice, to see how they might be duplicated. Download the Disparities in Care Report.

The Alliance is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit with more than 185 member organizations.
