The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality posted state-level data on healthcare quality, based on the previously released 2004 National Healthcare Quality Report. The AHRQ Web site now shows how states rank against each other in their performance on roughly 100 quality measures used in the national report. The site also includes a "snapshot" of states' performances, for each state showing two areas in which the state is doing well and two areas in which it needs improvement. -- by Joseph Mantone
