AHRQ’s State Snapshots Measure Health Care Quality, Access State By State

The overall quality and safety of health care are improving. But which states are showing the most improvement in which areas of care? AHRQ’s annual State Snapshots provide easy-to-read charts on the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for improvement in each state and the District of Columbia.
The State Snapshots allow users to analyze data from their state in various ways, including types and settings of care, or by select clinical conditions, insurance status, access to care and priority populations. Data are drawn from the 2014 National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report, which is compiled from more than 200 quality measures and represents the nation’s most complete source of data on the use and cost of health care and health insurance coverage. Trend data for most measures span from 2000–2002 to 2010–2012. Click here to view the data for New Jersey.
