A new data file added to AHRQ’s Compendium of U.S. Health Systems provides updated information for 2018 on group practices and their affiliations with the nation’s 637 health systems. The group practice data are publicly available so researchers and policymakers can identify group practices within health systems and then, linking to additional data sources, explore characteristics of the systems and their practices, such as cost and quality of care. In addition, the updated version of the file will allow users to assess trends in the organization and ownership of group practices within systems. The compendium was developed by AHRQ’s Comparative Health System Performance Initiative, which studies how healthcare delivery systems promote evidence-based practices and patient-centered outcomes research in delivering care. Access the new group practice file.
