Where do we stand when it comes to measuring and reporting on the quality of health care in the U.S. and which measures matter the most? Are you wondering which quality measures matter?
As the payment and delivery models underlying our health care system shift, stakeholders often focus on cost as a measure of positive impact. However, measuring quality is equally important and has proven to be a challenge as the measures typically used today rarely reveal meaningful variation in performance. CPR has created tools to help employers and other purchasers of health care assess which quality measures matter for their success.
