Sutter Health Joins Health Systems Nationwide to Share and Compare Data on Quality, Outcomes and Cost
Date:5/25/2011

li>

"We welcome these new partners and the experience, insights, and information they will bring to the Collaborative," said Dr. Robert Nesse, CEO of Mayo Clinic Health System and member of Mayo's Board of Trustees. "We need to learn from each other and put systems in place that ensure every patient gets the very best, most appropriate care, every time."

The HVHC will initially focus on nine increasingly prevalent condition/disease-specific areas that have wide variation in rates, costs, and outcomes – total knee replacement, diabetes, asthma, hip surgery, heart failure, perinatal care, depression, spine surgery and weight loss surgery.  Additional high-variation, high-cost conditions that affect diverse populations may be added over time.

Data analytics are facilitated through The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, the coordinating arm of the HVHC. The Dartmouth Institute, home to the Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care, has more than 20 years of experience analyzing complex Medicare claims data and disseminating the findings.
