The Health Care Report Card Compendium
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s (AHRQ) Health Care Report Card Compendium is a free, searchable collection of health care performance reports designed for consumers. It includes descriptions and links to a variety of reports intended to help consumers and patients better understand and choose among their health care options.
To access the Report Card Compendium, go to http://cahps.ahrq.gov/consumer-reporting/rcc/.
The Compendium is designed to support the many organizations that are developing report cards for consumers. Its purpose is to provide report sponsors with answers to the following questions:
- Who has been publishing reports on quality at various levels of the health care system?
- What kinds of information have they been reporting?
- How have they been presenting the data?
The Compendium is one of several tools for report sponsors in the Agency’s TalkingQuality Web site.
