The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has released two reports on patient quality trends. The National Healthcare Quality Report includes information obtained through quality measures, while the National Healthcare Disparities Report summarizes health care quality and access among various populations. Among other things, the Quality Report found that little progress has been made on reducing health care-associated infections (HAIs), with rates for three of five types of HAIs actually increasing (although rates of postoperative pneumonia improved).
