This study in the International Journal for Equity in Health aimed to listen to the views of community leaders from seven diverse urban communities in Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota, around quality healthcare and financial reimbursement. In the US, healthcare quality is measured by insurers, professional organisations and government agencies, with little input from diverse communities. The researchers found that community leaders identified several ideal characteristics of quality primary healthcare, most of which are not currently measured. Community leaders expressed concern that health inequalities are perpetuated when social and structural determinants of health are not considered in determining quality.
