Between 2004 and 2007, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) published a series of evidence reports—Closing the Quality Gap: A Critical Analysis of Quality Improvement Strategies—that summarized the evidence on quality improvement strategies related to chronic conditions (diabetes, asthma, hypertension), practice areas (prevention of health care-acquired infections, antibiotic prescribing behavior), and cross-cutting priorities (care coordination). A new series of reports, Closing the Quality Gap: Revisiting the State of Science, continues the focus on improving the quality of health care through critical assessment of relevant evidence for selected settings, interventions, and clinical conditions. Two protocols now are available for review and comment, the patient-centered medical home and quality improvement interventions to address health disparities.
