HHS Launches Health System Performance Dashboard


The Department of Health and Human Services launched the Health System Measurement Project on Tuesday, an extensive performance dashboard that provides data on approximately 50 health system measures.

The project aims to optimize the delivery of critical U.S. health system indicators to policymakers, providers, and the public, providing contextual, data-driven information to enhance the understanding of changes in the health care system.


The dashboard organizes over 400 datasets sourced from across the federal government in ten topical areas, including access to care, cost and affordability, prevention and health information technology.

Users of the site can then explore different measures in each topic, and drill down on each measure to compare trends across several dimensions such as year, geographic region, or population characteristics including age, sex, income level and insurance coverage status.
