ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota officials plan to announce results Wednesday from what they're billing as the nation's largest statewide patient experience survey.
It's a joint project of the Minnesota Department of Health and Minnesota Community Measurement.
The Minnesota HealthScores survey will look at the experience of Minnesota patients related to access to care, the timeliness of care, how well clinicians communicate, and how patients rank clinic providers and staff. Over 600 hospitals, clinics and medical groups will be rated against statewide average scores.
The results will be posted online, and consumers can use them to compare clinics, hospitals and groups to shop for high quality care.
