"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

New Representation on Key MNCM Committees

MN Community Measurement is proud to share the goal of ending health care disparities with many others in our community. As our work on health equity increases, it is important that people impacted by health care disparities are represented in our governance. The diversity of our committees has always been a defining characteristic of our multi-stakeholder process and is the reason we’re able to create high-value measures and publicly report actionable information. As we continue to evolve this diversity, we recently focused on inviting people impacted by disparities to have greater participation in our work.

To that end, we have added new participants to three important committees: the Measurement and Reporting Committee; the Risk Adjustment and Segmentation Committee; and the Total Cost of Care Technical Advisory Group. These committees will kick off their 2016 work in February.

MNCM is committed to a multi-stakeholder process and will continue to identify ways to engage all stakeholder voices in our work.
