The IOM consensus committee reviewed and synthesized current evidence to establish priority areas in healthcare quality and disparities for a combined update of the 2001 IOM report Envisioning the National Healthcare Quality Report (NHQR) and the 2002 IOM report Guidance for the National Healthcare Disparities Report (NHDR). The findings and recommendations, which will be publicly released at this event, address important questions evaluating quality and disparities in health care and provide insight and guidance to the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research (AHRQ) on ways to improve the NHQR and NHDR.
