Map Quest

Dartmouth researchers have spent years documenting and examining regional variations in the use of health care in the United States. Their findings, published in the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care, have long been noted by the media, but the research has been the subject of even closer scrutiny of late, in part because of its prominence in the debate over health-care reform. Recently, critics of the Atlas have pointed to what they feel are shortcomings of the work. In the Summer 2010 issue of Dartmouth Medicine, lead Atlas researchers Elliott Fisher, M.D., and Jonathan Skinner, Ph.D., responded to some of these criticisms in the article "Map Quest." Some of these articles published over the years in Dartmouth Medicine on Atlas research are available below. You can also learn more about the Atlas at www.dartmouthatlas.org.
