Quality and Performance Measurement
Discovering what works in health care
The health care system generates voluminous data—but more doesn’t always mean valid or useful. And raw numbers need to be translated into information providers and consumers can use to track and improve the quality of health care.
Looking at data and quality measures in new ways can solve problems that seem intractable. Our multidisciplinary teams create, interpret, and report on quality and performance measurement, strong evidence for best practices in health care and policy, as well as a clearer path toward value.
