Archived materials for monthly stakeholder calls

  • In early April, hospitals in Minnesota received confidential reports updating the Provider Peer Grouping Hospital Total Care reports they first received in September 2011 and again in March 2013.
  • For more information including answers to frequently asked questions and additional information about data sources and the calculation of quality and payment statistics in the methodology please visit the following website: http://www.health.state.mn.us/healthreform/peer/hospitaltotalcare.html
  • Under current law (Minnesota Statutes §62.U04), the results of these reports would be shared publicly 120 days following the confidential report release. The 2014 Legislature is considering legislation on the future of the All Payer Claims Database (APCD). As part of that bill, MDH would suspend the PPG initiative and the confidential reports released in early April would not be made public. Identical bills have passed the required House and Senate committees (HF 2656 and SF 2106), and a floor vote in the House. The bill now awaits a floor vote in the Senate for final passage and signature by Governor Dayton to become law. Final information on this legislation and its impact on PPG and the APCD should be available soon.

MDH convened two webinars to share additional information on these reports with hospitals including updates on the current methodology. For more information please see the Hospital Total Care Report webpage: http://health.state.mn.us/healthreform/peer/hospitaltotalcare.html
