Notice of Availability of Contract for Consumer Reporting Web Applications

The Minnesota Department of Health requests proposals from highly qualified respondents to enhance consumer awareness of differences in cost and quality among health care providers. Specifically, the contractor must work collaboratively with the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) to identify options for displaying complex health information in a consumer-friendly manner. MDH will use the contractor’s recommendations to inform its decisions about how to display quality data related to Minnesota Statutes 62U.02 and peer grouping data under Minnesota Statutes 62U.04. The contractor will subsequently create two consumer-friendly web applications: the first will be related to reporting solely on quality results to be launched in the fall of 2010, while the second will report provider peer grouping results as early as December 2010. The second web application will have some of the same functionality but will have more complex queries as it displays cost and quality data. The contractor will create and launch these two web applications, which will be hosted on a website controlled by MDH.

Work is proposed to start after July 29, 2010.
