National Veteran Health Equity Report - FY13

The National Veteran Health Equity Report details patterns and provides comparative rates of health conditions for vulnerable Veteran groups. Specifically, this report is designed to provide basic comparative information on the sociodemographics, utilization patterns and rates of diagnosed health conditions among the groups over which the VHA Office of Health Equity (OHE) has responsibility with respect to monitoring, evaluating and acting on identified disparities in access, use, care, quality and outcomes. The report allows the VA, Veterans, and stakeholders to monitor the care vulnerable Veterans receive and set goals for improving their care.

Data.gov is a key repository that provides increased public access to Federal datasets. Due to privacy restrictions, the VA does not release data where only 10 or fewer patients are represented. For this reason, the public data is slightly different than data available within the VA. These data are available at the following web address:

Hepatitis C Virus – Advanced Liver Disease Disparities Data

One of OHE’s objectives, as identified in the VHA Health Equity Action Plan, is to raise awareness and form partnerships in pursuit of equitable health for all Veterans. Towards this goal and with the support of VA Office of Policy and Planning, the OHE worked with the Director of National Data Systems and their staff for the public release of the Hepatitis C – Advanced Liver Disease Disparities data. As of November 18, 2015 these data were de-identified and released publicly on data.gov.
