Charting the Course to High-Value Health Care

With more than 70 regional health care performance measurement and reporting efforts underway, there is a pressing need for accurate and consistent information about the performance of physicians. This issue brief, developed by the Quality Alliance Steering Committee (QASC), highlights the work of the High-Value Health Care Project, an initiative that is working with key stakeholders to make consistent and useful information about the quality and cost of health care widely available to patients, physicians, hospitals, health insurers and others. Led by QASC, the High-Value Health Care Project aims to develop solutions for generating physician performance data that local and regional efforts can use as a model.
