8 Agency for Health care Research and Quality (AHRQ) is the lead federal agency responsible for tracking and improving quality The Annual AHRQ Quality Report (2006) High quality health care is not universal.

12 Reforming the system is a difficult problem. Each and every stakeholder will resist change and point to the other stakeholders as needing to change. How would you change the system? How would you pay for the changes? McGraw-Hill © 2010 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. All rights reserved 12-12

13 Would you deny care to people who make no effort to change their lifestyles? For example, smokers, care at higher risk for not only lung cancer, but a variety of other diseases. Should smokers get less healthcare? Should obese people, whose obesity is caused by overeating be denied care? McGraw-Hill © 2010 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. All rights reserved 12-13
