The Impact of Public Reporting: the U.S. NCQA Experience

Text Description is below the image.
  • Ten years of measuring data: measurement and public reporting leads to improvement:
    • U.S. children today nearly three times more likely to have had all immunizations as in 1997
    • U.S. diabetics today twice as likely to have cholesterol controlled (<130 mg/dL) as in 1998
    • More than 96% of U.S. cardiac patients prescribed beta-blockers after a heart attack (up from 62% in 1997); NCQA retired the beta-blocker/post hospital measure this year*
