• NQF awarded the 2016 Consumers and Patients for Quality Award to the Maine Health Management Coalition (MHMC), a regional health improvement coalition that reports quality and cost data for doctors and hospitals.

    MHMC’s website, www.getbettermaine.org, gives consumers access to provider and hospital ratings, which has reduced healthcare costs and improved quality of care for people in Maine. The organization has played a leading role in healthcare quality measurement and public reporting, both in Maine and nationally, since 1991. NQF spoke recently with MHMC’s former CEO, Andrew Webber, about the coalition’s work and the award.
