Future Directions for the National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Reports Appendix C Previous Conceptual Framework The Healthcare Research and Quality Act of 19991 directed AHRQ to develop two annual reports. Shortly thereafter, AHRQ contracted with the IOM to develop a vision for the reports and the reports’ content and presentation. AHRQ’s request subsequently led to the publication of two IOM reports: Envisioning the National Healthcare Quality Report (IOM, 2001) and Guidance for the National Healthcare Disparities Report (IOM, 2002). The recommendation of the IOM report Envisioning the National Healthcare Quality Report was that the conceptual framework for the NHDR be the same as that for the NHQR. Although equity was not visually represented in the conceptual framework presented in Envisioning the National Healthcare Quality Report, it clearly stated that equity was to be a crosscutting component. The conceptual framework was later modified by Guidance for the National Healthcare Disparities Report to visually depict equity, which is the framework depicted in Figure C-1.
