The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) creates an annual report, the National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report, which assesses the performance of the U.S. health care system. This report identifies strengths and weaknesses of the health care system in addition to disparities for access to health care and quality of health care. The report is based on more than 250 measures of quality and disparities, and it covers a broad range of health care services and settings.

    Access the most current report using the “National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Reports” AHRQ website , provided in the topic Resources. Select five data sources from this report and fill in the required components on the “Quality Data Sources Organizer.”
