Minnesota Health Care Quality Report: Results for Care Delivered in 2021

Share this:

Two new reports illustrate health care quality trends and variation in Minnesota and recognize nine Minnesota medical groups as top performers on health care quality. The reports were released by MN Community Measurement (MNCM), an independent non-profit that serves as an objective, trusted source of information on Minnesota health care quality, cost, and equity.

The first report, Minnesota Health Care Quality Report Part 2: Clinical Quality Measures Reported by Payersprovides information on statewide and medical group performance on quality measures that MNCM aggregates from health plans. It includes quality indicators for preventive care like cancer screening and immunizations, and also for care of acute and chronic conditions. The report includes performance data for 172 medical groups that operate in Minnesota and border communities in neighboring states. Medical group and clinic level performance is also publicly available.  Health plans that contributed data for this report include Blue Cross Blue Shield of MN, HealthPartners, Hennepin Health, Itasca Medical Care, Medica, Preferred One, PrimeWest Health, Sanford Health, South Country Health Alliance, and UCare.

The second new report, Minnesota Health Care Quality Report Part 3: Top Performing Medical Groups Across All Quality Measures, combines these data with clinical quality measures published by MNCM in fall 2022 to identify top performing medical groups, defined as those with statistically better than average performance on at least half of the measures that were applicable to them. The report identifies nine medical groups in Minnesota as top performers based on their overall quality performance in 2021.
