Who We Are - About MN Community Measurement
HealthScores was developed by MN Community Measurement, an independent non-profit community organization. We are also the organization behind the D5, a website dedicated to high quality diabetes care. Our goal is to communicate fair, usable and reliable information about health care quality to providers, health care purchasers and consumers.
Our Mission: To accelerate the improvement of health by publicly reporting health care information.
Our Vision: MN Community Measurement will:
- be THE trusted source for performance measurement and public reporting of quality data across the spectrum of health care that
- drives changes towards more safe, effective, patient centered, timely, efficient, and equitable care
- be a resource used by providers to improve care and patients to make better decisions
- catalyze our community to work together on health measurement and reduce administrative costs and maximize value.
MN Community Measurement is a collaborative effort in our community among those who believe that you cannot improve what you don't measure. Our collaborative includes medical groups, clinics, physicians, hospitals, health plans, employers, consumer representatives and quality improvement organizations. These stakeholders support the idea that greater transparency (sharing of information) in our health care system will lead to better health outcomes for the people of Minnesota.
