Health Care Quality Ranked by State

Maine, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Minnesota were the nation’s top-performing states for health care quality, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) updated State Snapshots.

The State Snapshots are an interactive online resource that provides state-level data showing how all 50 states and the District of Columbia performed on more than 250 measures related to health care quality and access to care.

Drawn from AHRQ’s 2015 National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report, the State Snapshots show how each state fared according to National Quality Strategy priorities, prevalence of diseases and conditions, health status of priority populations, insurance status, access to care, care type,  and care setting.

While the 2015 report shows progress nationwide in access to and affordability of care, the State Snapshots reveal substantial variations across states and sizable disparities related to race, ethnicity, income, and other factors.
