Abstract

Multiple efforts related to expanded access to care may have contributed to greater likelihood of admission to high-quality hospitals for African American and Hispanic patients, but these efforts do not seem to have affected Asian/Pacific Islander patients. Further research is needed to explore mechanisms for improving outcomes in high-risk populations. Policies should continue to support healthcare quality improvement efforts that have shown positive effects on outcomes of patients of all racial/ethnic groups. Programs that help Asian/ Pacific Islander patients to identify and attend high-quality hospitals should also be encouraged.
