"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

MNHealthScores.org launches revised website

You spoke, and we listened.

MN Community Measurement (MNCM) listened to users of MNHealthScores.org, a website which allows users to compare ratings on the quality and cost of healthcare in Minnesota and neighboring areas. MNCM revised the site to enhance user experience and increase usability of the site. The improvements, which launched today, include a complete overhaul of the homepage and quicker access to search results for all of the measures reported on MNHealthScores.org.

MNHealthScores.org fulfills a significant portion of MNCM’s mission to publicly report health care information. Publicly-available data drives improvement in the cost, quality and patient experience of health care by engaging both consumers and providers.

One of the many improvements is the ability to share search results. Users will now be able to print, save, and share customized search results.

Another improvement is a listing of all measures at a glance. ‘What are the different things MNCM measures?’ is a common question from site users. The “See All Measure Topics” icon is prominently displayed on the top navigation bar and will show on all site pages. At any time, website visitors can scan and click into any of the measures currently displayed on this helpful icon.

Additionally, MNHealthScores.org visitors will see more clear names and labels leading to faster overall site navigation, a more robust search feature, and transparent ratings displays.

Please visit the redesigned MNHealthScores.org soon! If you have any questions, please contact us at info@mncm.org.
