A new AHRQ-sponsored special issue of Health Services Research explores how to improve public reporting systems, the resources that aim to help consumers get the most value from their health care dollars by comparing health care providers. With wide variations in safety and quality among providers in virtually every area of health care, public reports have tremendous potential to help consumers select providers that offer high-quality, affordable care. However, current reports don’t necessarily help consumers as intended. The research featured in this issue shows how public reports can be improved by incorporating evidence-based best practices.
