Greater efficiency in the process of matching patients to appropriate providers is vital to achieving the Triple Aim. As patients research and choose among appropriate providers, sound decision-making will depend on the accessibility of high-quality data that enables them to make meaningful, actionable comparisons. Online public-reporting tools, such as those published by U.S. News, CMS and others, serve as venues for consumer decision-making.
