The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is providing a compilation of report card samples as a service to report developers, researchers and other users, via the Health Care Report Card Compendium. This Compendium is a searchable directory of health care “report cards” which provide comparative information on the quality of health plans, hospitals, medical groups, individual physicians, nursing homes, and other providers of care.
Designed to be a resource for those interested in creating health care report cards for their organizations, the Compendium includes over 200 examples that demonstrate a wide range of approaches to reporting data. Report card developers can use these examples to explore the scope and types of information they might want to cover as well as various approaches to presenting comparative data.
The Compendium includes a variety of printed and Web-based reports produced since the mid-1990s by a wide range of sponsors. In every case, a primary purpose of the information is to help consumers and patients better understand and choose among their health plan or provider options.
