Minnesota Statewide Quality Reporting & Measurement System (SQRMS)

Minnesota's 2008 Health Reform Law requires the commissioner of health to establish a standardized set of quality measures for health care providers across the state. The goal is to create a uniform approach to quality measurement in Minnesota to enhance market transparency and improve health care quality. To implement the collection and reporting of quality measurement data, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has developed the Minnesota Statewide Quality Reporting and Measurement System (created through Minnesota Rules, Chapter 4654).
