Total Cost of Care and Resource Use


MHI is using its claims data asset and diverse stakeholder partnerships to gain a deeper understanding of health care cost and utilization in our region. The goal is to foster an ongoing, honest dialogue about how our region might work together to lower costs, improve the appropriate use of resources and position itself as a national leader in health care quality and affordability.  

The Healthcare Regional Cost Measurement and Transparency Project brings together MHI and four other regional health improvement collaboratives from around the nation to report Total Cost of Care and Relative Resource Use in each region using standardized measures developed by Health Partners of Minneapolis and endorsed by the National Quality Forum. The project began in 2013 and will continue through at least Fall 2016.

Initially, MHI will be sharing data privately with physician groups and practice sites and in community reports, such as the one to the right. The goal is to share more data publicly over time to support those who use, provide and pay for health care in developing a better understanding of where our dollars are going and the value we're receiving.
