Unequal Treatment: Confronting Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health Care

Presented by the National Academy Press, this in-depth report examines healthcare disparities between racial minorities and whites. Although those categorized as minorities make up more than half the US population, they still receive a lower quality of healthcare than whites even when insurance status and income are compatible. According to the report, sources of this incongruence is rooted in historic and contemporary inequities and involve many participants at several levels. The study committee focused part of its analysis on the patient/system level factor and the clinical encounter factor. For those interested in learning about these healthcare disparities as well as systematic multi-leveled strategies to counteract them, the information is merely a click away. Viewers have the option of reading the whole report online, or downloading and printing the document in .pdf. The report is 191 pages long (excluding references); therefore, printing the entire report may take some time.
