"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

As a neutral, community-wide convener, MN Community Measurement has been a national pioneer in collaborative and transparent health care quality performance measurement. For us to continue to be effective, we need broad support from the community for our critical work on quality, cost and patient experience measurement and reporting.

Our proven track record includes:

⇒ Compare clinics for quality of treatment

⇒ Compare the average costs of procedures like colonoscopy, c-section delivery and vaccinations

⇒ Compare patient experiences at individual clinics, including communication, office staff and whether they gave the clinic a top rating

  • Successful alignment of state, federal, pay for performance and insurance provider contracting to use the same measures, thereby increasing efficiency for providers
  • Developing tools and resources to help consumers make informed health care choices
  • Continual development of new measures to support community and consumer needs, such as knee and spine surgery outcomes and pediatric mental health and obesity care

For an annual contribution, you’ll support this critical work and receive benefits such as:

  • Notification of applicable board and committee openings
  • Notification of measure development workgroup participation and other feedback opportunities
