Better Health Greater Cleveland
The MetroHealth System is proud to be a founding partner of the Better Health Greater Cleveland initiative.
Better Health Greater Cleveland is an unparalleled alliance of regional stakeholders that is committed to improving the health and quality of care for Greater Cleveland’s residents with common chronic medical conditions.
The alliance synchronizes three vital initiatives:
- Measuring and publicly reporting physician group practice achievement using nationally endorsed indicators of high quality care
- Consumer education that builds community understanding of health-care quality and spurs patient activation in their care
- Coordinated region-wide provider education in quality improvement
Better Health Greater Cleveland leverages regional cooperation and the electronic medical records capabilities of the region’s health systems to report on outpatient care across all payer sources and socioeconomic groups for several important conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, and heart failure. Better Health Greater Cleveland participants range from public health agencies to the regional business community.
