Hospital and healthcare system workers are among the first to respond in the face of a crisis, often at their own personal risk, to provide their services to those in need. Over the past two weeks, Hurricanes Harvey and Irma left a path of destruction that will be felt for years to come. Homes were lost, but hope was not. When first responders were unable to respond to calls, neighbors and strangers alike came together to offer their assistance.

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has released the 2016 National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report (QDR). The annual report is mandated by Congress to provide a comprehensive overview of the quality of healthcare received by the general U.S. population and disparities in care experienced by different racial and socioeconomic groups. The report assesses the performance of our healthcare system and identifies areas of strengths and weaknesses, as well as disparities, for access to healthcare and quality of healthcare. Rhode Island performed well in the report, earning one of the nation’s highest overall quality scores.  Read More
