MN HealthScores

MNHealthScores ratings and resources is brought to you by MN Community Measurement where you can find unbiased, trustworthy information on the quality of medical clinics; the experience you can expect to have as a patient; and the general cost you’ll have to pay. You can find out how well patients were cared for and their experience at more than 1,400 clinics, 535 medical groups and 140 hospitals in Minnesota and neighboring communities. You can learn the costs of various procedures and which medical groups are the most careful with your health care dollars.

Most importantly, you can use the information to make smarter choices about your medical care. It will help you:

  • Compare and choose clinics based on quality, patient experience and cost ratings. You can search for clinics, medical groups and hospitals by name, location or see them all.
  • Understand the care you should expect to receive and what questions to ask your doctor. Patient resources on health topics such as diabetes, depression and asthma will support you in being an engaged patient and developing a positive doctor-patient relationship.
  • Learn how to save money on your care. Review the average monthly cost of care at medical groups around Minnesota, as well as the average cost for more than 100 common procedures – such as colonoscopies, x-rays and lab tests – to find which medical groups provide the highest value for you. Plus, get tips on how to reduce your overall health care costs.
