We looked at trends in AMI (acute myocardial infarction) hospitalization rates among elderly Medicare beneficiaries over the 10-year period 2002 to 2011, focusing specifically on whether the post-2007 declines are also more modest for blacks than for whites, potentially reflecting a growing gap in care.
