This congressionally commissioned report by the Institute of Medicine assesses racial and ethnic differences in healthcare not otherwise attributable to known factors such as access to care, evaluates potential sources of such differences, and provides recommendations regarding proper interventions. The report recommends equalizing access to high-quality insurance plans, strengthening doctor-patient relationships over time, increasing the number of minorities represented in the health professions, enforcing civil rights laws, and creating more interpretation services. The CD- ROM contains all the appendixes published in the text of the more expensive, 768-page version of the report (ISBN 0-309-08532-2). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
