MHI Releases New Report

 

Identifying the number, practice location and specialty of providers in our region is fundamental to understanding how the health care system works and how it changes over time. But all too often, that basic information has been unavailable.

 

The Midwest Health Initiative is pleased to share with you its latest report, “The Doctor Is In: An Overview of Practicing Primary Care and Select Specialty Providers in Eastern and Mid-Missouri Counties.”  This report was made possible through the financial support of the Missouri Foundation for Health.

MHI Partners with Four Other Regions to Examine Health Care Cost and Resource Use

 

MHI was named one of five regional health improvement collaboratives, known as RHICs, to participate in the Healthcare Regional Cost Measurement & Transparency project funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and led by the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement. The project is expected to run through early 2015.

 

Deliverables for the Project Include:

1) To use nationally-standardized, National Quality Forum-endorsed measure to report health care cost and resource use at the physician group and community levels in the MHI region;

2) To analyze the data to begin to identify cost drivers;

3) To engage in a dialogue with various stakeholders to obtain their input on using a measure of health care costs to try to reduce them; and

4) To contribute to the development of resources that other communities can use to engage in similar measurement, analysis, and outreach efforts.

 

Our Mission

To provide a forum where trusted information and shared responsibility are used to improve health and the quality and affordability of health care.
