MHI to Launch Public Website for Consumers Showing Variation in Medical Care 

 

For health care quality and affordability to improve, physicians need information on how often their patients receive evidence-based care and how it compares to others. Consumers need this information too.

 

Next spring MHI will release a public website with information on how often patients receive recommended care. Patients will be able to see these rates for the physician practices they visit and compare those rates with other physician practices and community averages.  MHI wants to share these results with physicians first. To do so, it has created CareWell, a private online portal physicians can access free of charge. For more information, contact Sarah Matula at 314-721-7800.

 

MHI also shares its data through reports on differences in care quality and affordability. Three of these reports are below.
