The measurement of health care performance has great potential to further advance evidence-based medicine. For many years, Mathematica has developed, tested, and implemented a wide range of health care measures intended to promote better clinical practice thereby containing costs, while improving quality. Lessons from our work along with fresh ideas about how electronic clinical data, combined with a Bayesian approach to performance reporting, can help support evidence-based clinical practice will be shared in this forum . A panel of leading health care and performance measure experts discussed intermediate and long-term approaches to strengthening the relationship between measures of health care performance and one of the many goals of these measures—to support evidence-based clinical practice.
