Statewide health care quality reporting is here, and it’s time to report your clinic’s information.2013 Statewide Quality Reporting Brochure
Providing information to compare quality is fundamental to reforming Minnesota's health care system. The State of Minnesota is working with health care providers across the continuum of care to provide health care quality data that is meaningful for physicians and consumers. To implement the collection and reporting of quality measurement data, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has developed the Minnesota Statewide Quality Reporting and Measurement System (created through Minnesota Rules, Chapter 4654).
