Provider Peer Grouping - Request for Information
The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) released a Request for Information (RFI) in March 2009 related to provider peer grouping. MDH is required to establish a methodology for comparing providers on a composite measure of cost and quality by January 1, 2010. This RFI identifies key issues and questions that must be addressed in developing a methodology for provider peer grouping. MDH seeks information from a wide range of respondents on these issues and questions.
Responses to the RFI were due in April 2009. Information received in response to this RFI and collected through additional background research are being synthesized into a set of issue papers. These issue papers are the starting point for a public advisory group to provide recommendations on the development of the peer grouping system.
