The HealthInsight Quality Award Program was launched in September 2004 to promote transparency in health care; 2018 is the inaugural year for the awards in Oregon. As defined by the Institute of Medicine, a transparent health care system is “accountable to the public, works openly, makes results known, and builds trust through disclosure.” By using publicly available quality data to identify high-performing providers and publicizing the results, HealthInsight aims to help providers improve health care and help patients become more active and informed participants in their own care.
