Report details racial and ethnic disparities in California Healthcare

A report released recently by the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development details healthcare disparities. Entitled “Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Healthcare in California: California Fact Book,” the report presents more than 30 healthcare quality measures for the state’s five predominant racial and ethnic populations: Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asian/Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans. It identifies trends and gaps in access to healthcare and the quality of services received by these populations. Pediatric and adult asthma are two of the focal points. To view the report, click here.
