This study used survey data collected in 2010, 2014, and 2015 to examine public perceptions of health care quality information over time. Investigators found that the public was more likely to be aware of quality information in 2014 and 2015 compared to 2010. Patients with higher educational attainment and patients from racial and ethnic minority populations were more likely to report awareness of health care quality. They conclude that this growing awareness provides an opportunity to enhance patient engagement.
