Data Analytics and Reports

MNCM has a robust infrastructure for collecting and analyzing health care data, including quality, cost and patient experience information. We have significant experience implementing data collection systems, as well as validating, analyzing and reporting the data collected by them. We assist organizations with all or some of these elements, based on where they are in their pursuit to collect and analyze health care data.

Customized Analysis and Reports

MNCM will customize our analysis to meet your needs. What information are you looking for from the data? We can analyze different types of data in a variety of ways. Contact opportunities@mncm.org to inquire about details and pricing.

Our process generally includes:

  • Discussion and needs analysis
  • For sizeable projects, a kick-off meeting to confirm the project plan
  • File preparation and set-up
  • Sorting, calculation and analysis of the data
  • Preparation and execution of deliverables
  • Results meeting and next steps

After the data is analyzed, we provide understandable and compelling reports with our findings for you to share with stakeholders. Some of the deliverable formats we can provide include:

  • Results Format – Excel file with tables of results
  • Presentation Format – PowerPoint slides with graphs, maps and charts (as appropriate)
  • Report and Issue Brief Format
    • Summary Report: Narrative content that highlights the key findings including graphs, maps and charts (as appropriate).
    • Web Publication: Featured content on mncm.org, including a designated section within the website.
  • Academic Format – Submit analysis and report to a peer-reviewed journal for potential publication.

Once created, we can also provide reports to other organizations, such as CMS, on your behalf.

Public Reports

MNCM also produces numerous reports that are available to the public, free of charge on our website. Our emphasis is on providing comparative data and analysis, and in sharing recommendations to improve performance and care delivery. Some reports are produced annually, while others are produced as a result of specific partnerships or projects.
