HHS Health System Measurement Project
Earlier this month, the Department and Human Services launched the Health System Measurement Project. The Project brings together, in an easy to use format, trend information on about 50 key health system-related measures across ten topical areas, including access to care, cost and affordability, prevention, and health information technology. Most of the data can be viewed by various population characteristics. The project was developed by the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation. The measures included are drawn primarily from existing, publicly available datasets.
