November 2019 | CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services)
“Disparities in the quality of care that minority populations receive, even when they have the same insurance, socioeconomic status, and comorbidities as their non-minority counterparts are well documented. Evidence based interventions are an effective tool for reducing health disparities and lowering cost. Therefore, focused quality improvement efforts should be targeted to populations at risk for disparities.”
