Transparency

Medical Icons on ScreenThe MHA Price and Quality Transparency Initiative’s purpose is to increase transparency of price and quality data in Missouri hospitals. Transparency will allow hospitals to continue improving the quality and safety of care provided, improving health in their communities and increasing the value of care received. This focus commonly is referred to as the Triple Aim — better health, better care and lower costs. The goal of the initiative is to provide current and complete information to consumers, while increasing statewide efforts to reduce variation in outcomes and better coordinate care across all settings through noncompetitive methods.

Missouri hospital leaders are voluntarily sharing information that is current, complete and correct. By being proactive, the hospital community can demonstrate its commitment to safe, affordable, quality care. Research has shown that, through transparency, hospitals can improve quality care related to readmissions and reduce harm by approximately 15 percent.
