Public report cards compare and contrast physicians

Wall Street Journal, October 28, 2009

The Minneapolis-based nonprofit MN Community Measurement has become a model for a tool now proliferating around the U.S., in which local and regional healthcare providers and insurers cooperate to make performance data public. In Minnesota, the state legislature recently passed a law requiring all medical practices to participate in the ratings system starting in 2010. In all, there are more than 50 regional health-improvement collaboratives in the U.S., according to the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement, a Pittsburgh-based association of the nonprofits.
