WhyNotTheBest.org: A Web Resource for Quality Improvement


Through a previous Board grant, The Commonwealth Fund developed a Web resource, WhyNotTheBest.org, to enable health care professionals to compare their organization's performance against that of peer groups over time, to access case studies and improvement tools, and to interact with colleagues. The goal is to give providers the resources they need to measure and improve. The first phase of the site will be launched in December 2008 at the national meeting of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement. In 2009, the resource will be further developed, based on feedback from users, partner organizations, and Fund colleagues. Project staff will add new data sets (e.g., hospital readmission rates); additional functionality (e.g., a performance improvement calculator); and features for particular audiences (e.g., safety-net hospitals).
