MAPPING MEDICARE DISPARITIES IN CHRONIC DISEASES

MAPPING MEDICARE DISPARITIES IN CHRONIC DISEASES

The MMD Tool provides a user friendly way to explore and better understand disparities in chronic diseases, and allows users to: 1) visualize health outcome measures at a national, state, or county level; 2) explore health outcome measures by age, race and ethnicity, sex; 3) compare differences between two geographic locations (e.g., benchmark against the national average); and 4) compare differences between two racial and ethnic groups within the same geographic area.

The Mapping Medicare Disparities (MMD) Tool contains health outcome measures for disease prevalence, costs, hospitalization for 55 specific chronic conditions, emergency department utilization, readmissions rates, mortality, preventable hospitalizations, and preventive services.
