The Alliance was among the first organizations in the U.S. to produce side-by-side comparisons of hospital quality when it introduced the QualityCounts® reports and website in 1999. Judith Hibbard, Ph.D., University of Oregon, documented the impact of The Alliance’s early work on improving health care outcomes through research published in Health Affairs in 2005.
In 2008 we made our reports available through our provider directory and released our first-ever QualityCounts® Outpatient Procedures and Tests report.
The Alliance also provided outreach to people who pre-certified for select procedures and tests to alert them to the opportunity to compare costs.
These efforts laid the groundwork for the Find a Doctor website that offers cost and quality information online today
