The health care quality improvement movement in the US is in the midst of an important discussion and debate about reducing measurement burden and homing in on measures that really matter. Against a backdrop of hundreds of improvements that are being tracked and reported on by thousands of health systems in the US alone, guidance on which measures are most important to the pursuit of better care, better health, and lower cost couldn’t be more timely.
The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) has a longstanding interest in measures that health and health care leaders, including hospital trustees, can make sense of and track. Strong examples of this focus are two IHI White Papers: Whole System Measures (published in 2007) and A Guide to Measuring the Triple Aim (published in 2010). Now, IHI is pleased to introduce the field to Whole System Measures 2.0: A Compass for Health System Leaders, a brand new IHI White Paper we discussed on the December 1 WIHI: Measures That Matter: Whole System Measures 2.0.
