"The two words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." -- Sydney J. Harris

Become a MNCM Sponsoring Member Today

As your organization looks at its end of the year giving and the organizations it supports and partners with, we hope you’ll keep MN Community Measurement (MNCM) in mind. By joining MNCM as a sponsoring member, your organization will help further the improvement of health through measurement and public reporting.

2015 has been a particularly special year for us, as it marks our 10th anniversary. MNCM began with an idea and a small report on the diabetes performance of about 50 medical groups and has transformed into the primary trusted source for health data sharing and measurement in Minnesota and nationally. Over the past year, we accomplished several key milestones in fulfillment of our mission to accelerate the improvement of health by publicly reporting health care information.

They include:

Accelerating the improvement of health and catalyzing our community requires foresight. In the coming year, we will continue to convene varied stakeholders to evaluate, discuss and achieve consensus on the procedures, conditions and types of care sites that require measurement to ensure the level of highest quality and safety are being achieved. In the coming months we will publicly report new spine surgery and total knee replacement outcome measures for the first time, as well as kick off pilots of new specialty measures in cancer care and low back pain quality.

Join us today!

Your annual contribution will support this critical work, as well as provide you with:

  • Notification of applicable board and committee openings
  • Opportunities to network with MNCM leaders and other members who are passionate about health and health care quality
  • Notification of measure development workgroup participation and other feedback opportunities
  • Discounted rates on our annual one-day seminar
  • Recognition on MNCM.org, subscription to our monthly e-newsletter and access to member-only webinars

With the help of sponsoring members like you, we will continue to bring individuals and organizations together to improve the health of our community. And since MNCM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, your organizations contribution may be tax deductible!
