AHRQ Releases Chartbook on Health Care for Hispanics

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality recently released a chartbook on Hispanic health care.

Key findings of the report included:

• For many measures of care for mental health disorders, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer, Hispanics received worse quality of care than non-Hispanic Whites. 

• No narrowing of disparities was observed among measures of cardiovascular and mental health care. 

• Suicide prevention and mental health care for Hispanics is worsening, with many disparities and no reductions in disparities over time. 

• Hispanics also experience many disparities in care for diabetes.

•Care for substance use disorders is poor for all ethnic groups.
