In 2004, AHRQ launched a collection of evidence reports, Closing the Quality Gap: A Critical Analysis of Quality Improvement Strategies, to bring data to bear on quality improvement opportunities. These reports summarized the evidence on quality improvement strategies related to chronic conditions, practice areas, and cross-cutting priorities.
This evidence report is part of a new series, Closing the Quality Gap: Revisiting the State of the Science. This report evaluates the effectiveness of public reporting of health care quality information as a quality improvement strategy.
