Lopez L, Steers WN, Toyama JA, Yuan A, Smith L, Kasom DR, Jackson L, Canning M, Washington DL. National Veteran Health Equity Report - Hispanic and Latino Veteran Chartbook. Focus on Veterans Health Administration Patient Experience and Health Care Quality. Washington DC: VHA Office of Health Equity; 2022 Sep 28. 1-26 p.


The National Veterans Health Equity Report 2021 provides information regarding disparities in patient experiences and health care quality for Veterans who obtain health care services through the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). 1 Data on disparities are presented by the sociodemographic characteristics of race/ethnicity, gender, age group, rurality of residence, socio-economic status, and service-connected disability rating, and by cardiovascular risk factors of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes. This chartbook focuses on experiences of care and health care quality of Hispanic/Latino Veterans receiving care in VHA. Data in this report is from the fiscal year 2016 to fiscal year 2019 Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) Survey of Healthcare Experiences of Patients (SHEP)- Patient Centered Medical Home survey instrument, and the fiscal year 2016 to fiscal year 2019 VA External Peer Review Program quality monitoring program. Hispanic/Latino individuals make up about 17.8% of the total American population. 2 The Hispanic/Latino population is one of the fastest growing racial groups in America. It is currently estimated that by 2060 the Hispanic/Latino population will grow to 27.5% of the total population in America.
