New "Healthcare Compass" Site Provides Data on Mass Primary Care Practices

Health Compass home page

MA Health Quality Partners today launched its new consumer website with quality data for pediatric and adult primary care practices across Massachusetts.

The website, called Healthcare Compass (http://healthcarecompassma.org), provides both clinical quality data and patient experience data. The website is easy to navigate and comprehend, with options to dive more deeply into data for those who want to, and provides links to many useful resources, websites, and tools.

While more work is needed to help consumers learn about an individual physician (the site reports data at a practice level), we appreciate MHQP's work to develop a consumer-oriented website that can used for making health care decisions.
