Provider Peer Grouping Advisory Group
The Minnesota Department of Health convened an advisory group charged with providing recommendations to the Commissioner on creating a methodology to compare health care providers on a composite measure of risk-adjusted cost and quality.
The advisory group met throughout the summer and fall of 2009. It was composed of members appointed by a broad cross-section of stakeholder organizations and was led by co-chairs Jan Malcolm and Dr. Charlie Fazio. Ann Robinow and Andrea Kao facilitated the group.
The advisory group submitted its final recommendations on the peer grouping methodology in October 2009. The advisory group’s final report is available for public review.
MDH published a Request for Proposals to implement the peer grouping methodology on November 23, 2009. Mathematica Health Policy is the selected contractor for this project.
