Provider Peer Grouping -
Reliability Work Group
Minnesota Statutes 62U.04 requires the Commissioner to consult with providers, health plans, purchasers and consumers regarding an appropriate minimum reliability threshold for the peer grouping results. For this purpose, the Minnesota Department of Health convened a Reliability Work Group to provide advice about how to consider reliability for the peer grouping analysis and for MDH to convey information about reliability related to specific methodological issues.
The work group’s first meeting was held in December 2010.
