MNCM produces numerous reports that are available to the public, free of charge. Our emphasis is on providing comparative data and analysis, and in sharing recommendations to improve performance and care delivery. Some reports – such as the Health Care Quality Report, the Health Care Disparities Report, and the Health Equity of Care Report – are produced annually. Others have been produced as a result of specific partnerships or projects, including the AF4Q Consumer Engagement Workgroup Report, the Advancing Primary Care: Minnesota Practice Assessment Results Report and 2008 Health Information Technology Report.
Total Cost of Care
Total Cost of Care Reports
The 2016 Cost & Utilization Report features analysis and comparative data on medical group performance that breaks out the total cost into price and utilization. MN Community Measurement’s inaugural Total Cost of Care Report featured analysis and comparative data on medical group performance in total cost of care, which includes all costs associated with treating commercially-insured patients, including professional, facility inpatient and outpatient, pharmacy, lab, radiology, behavioral health and ancillary costs.
Health Care Disparities
Health Care Disparities Report
MN Community Measurement’s annual Health Care Disparities Report presents statewide and medical group rates of performance on ten quality measures for patients in Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP). It also includes differences in rates of care provided by medical groups between patients insured through MHCP and those insured through other forms of health care insurance, such as commercial or Medicare-managed care.
