To improve the quality of health care, we need better information about the performance of doctors and hospitals. You cannot improve what you do not measure. Across the country, Aligning Forces for Quality communities are developing online public reports to make that information available to those who get care, give care and pay for care. This video tells their stories.
Performance Measurement and Public Reporting in Action
To improve the quality of health care, we need better information about physician and hospital performance. Around the country, Aligning Forces for Quality communities have been developing public reports with this information, making it accessible to those who receive care, pay for care and provide care to enable them to make better choices and recognize opportunities for improvement.
Already, communities have experienced success, including providers who are more receptive to performance measurement and actual improvements in measurements. Here is a look at some of those stories.
