Raising the Bar for Web Resources on Health Care Performance Benchmarking and Improvement: Upgrades for WhyNotTheBest.org, Phase 3


In 2010, The Commonwealth Fund's quality improvement resource for health care providers, WhyNotTheBest.org, was enhanced with new data sets and maps that provide regional views of performance. This year's grant, in addition to supporting the site's hosting and maintenance, will enable IPRO and Fund staff to update data sets, add new information on physician performance and prevention, and highlight hospital systems' structural features, which will enable comparisons among systems with varying degrees of integration. The grant also will support the development of tools for estimating the improvement in patient outcomes and health care costs if organizations were to raise their performance to 'best in class.' Through a unique partnership with states that publicly report hospital safety and quality indicators, WhyNotTheBest.org will continue to supply health care leaders with cutting-edge information needed for performance improvement.
