Who is behind this website?
MNHealthScores is managed by MN Community Measurement (MNCM), an independent, non-profit community organization founded in 2005. Our goal is to communicate fair, usable and reliable information about health care quality, cost and patient experience. MNCM empowers health care decision makers with meaningful data to drive improvement. Since 2002, we have collected, analyzed and evaluated health care quality information from Minnesota doctors and clinics. We have published that information online for the public since 2004. We have facilitated the State of Minnesota's mandatory health care reporting program since 2008. And our work has repeatedly been recognized by federal programs and national organizations, including the National Quality Forum, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The information provided on MNHealthScores is objective, unbiased and validated. It cannot be manipulated by outside groups, including the clinics, medical groups and hospitals whose information is reported here.
Where does the information come from?
The information collected to create the ratings on this site comes from a wide variety of sources, including clinic, medical group and hospital electronic medical records; insurance company claims databases; state databases; and national databases. The data submitted by clinics and medical groups is checked for accuracy before it's included on MNHealthScores. The information is updated regularly; most clinic, medical group and hospital ratings are updated annually.
