Abstract

Tennessee providers are recognizing an urgent need for a new and improved model of healthcare, characterized by transparent accountability to consumers. Meaningful health system improvements will require broad public disclosure of healthcare performance data at the hospital, clinic and community levels using nationally recognized standards. All Tennessee communities need a routine community health report card, to help their citizens to work together toward their most important health goals.
