The Dartmouth Atlas has produced the first report showing the patterns of care received by nearly the entire population of infants and children in Northern New England for ambulatory physician services, hospitalization, common surgery, imaging, and outpatient prescription fills. The findings from this report show marked variation in care across the region; while there are many examples of excellent care, the findings raise troubling questions about whether the medical practice patterns reflect the care that infants and children need and that their families want. Read the report, press release, download data tables, or purchase a hardcover or paperback copy.
In its first look at prescription drug use, the Dartmouth Atlas Project shows that the use of both effective and risky drug therapies by Medicare patients varies widely across U.S. regions, offering further evidence that location is a key determinant in the quality and cost of the medical care that patients receive.
