Measurement Framework

As part of a set of changes to the Minnesota Statewide Quality Reporting and Measurement System implemented during the 2017 legislative session, the Minnesota Legislature directed the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to develop a measurement framework in collaboration with a broad group of stakeholders by mid-2018 that:

  • Identifies the most important elements for assessing the quality of care;
  • Articulates statewide quality improvement goals;
  • Ensures clinical relevance;
  • Fosters alignment with other measurement efforts; and
  • Defines the roles of stakeholders.

For further details on the legislation and measurement framework, please see the 2017 Legislative Update (PDF).

Steering Team

MDH has recruited a steering team to provide input as it develops the framework with a broader group of stakeholders. MDH will convene the team monthly and meetings will be open to the public.
