About our reporting

Text

By combining Medicare FFS data with our linked, de-identified commercial claims and clinical data set, we have unprecedented breadth and depth of data to provide insights on the quality of care in the U.S. We’re offering a fresh look at what these quality measures tell us.

Reporting themes

Our measure reports focus on two themes. One focuses on whether the processes we measure impact the outcomes that matter. Are process measures, like rates of cancer screening, highly correlated with the expected markers of good patient outcomes, such as cancer survival?

Our second report focuses on the initial transition between commercial insurance and Medicare, which can now be measured with integrated commercial and Medicare data — both FFS and Medicare Advantage.

Are people who are moving into Medicare experiencing significant changes in health? Better understanding these transitions could help payers and providers find opportunities to better help patients at these times.

We offer a starting point for health care stakeholders to examine these two themes by summarizing a few starter insights from the results. Our interactive reports then offer more insights to inform health care quality and policy discussions and spur more research.

Comparing Processes and Outcomes

There are many measures that focus on "process" – tasks that doctors and patients are supposed to do. But which measures really make health better? We provide a lens to explore this question with 19 process and outcomes measures for two important diseases: cancer and diabetes.

Transition to Medicare

Little is known about how quality of care, particularly for conditions requiring highly coordinated care, is impacted as people transition from commercial insurance to Medicare. We explore this area by looking at diabetes, hospitalization, and harm domain measures.
