"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

Report on Depression Care in Minnesota Released

MNCM has released a new report on Depression Care in Minnesota, which includes summary information and detailed results of all of the data submitted to MNCM in 2018 related to depression.

Data by Measurement Focus Area

This report is the first in a new series that presents data by measurement focus area. These reports will bring together performance results on both quality and health equity for measures relevant in each category. The series is intended to provide a more in-depth, user friendly view of measure results that can more effectively draw attention to the wealth of data that MNCM publishes, engage stakeholder audiences more effectively, and catalyze improvement.

Data from the report were featured at a recent community dialogue on mental health convened by the Minnesota Health Action Group. See below for links to the report, media coverage, and a Star Tribune editorial on the importance of improving depression care:
