About the Project

The Health System Measurement Project brings together trend data on a limited set of key health system measures from multiple data sources to provide a picture of the status of the U.S. health system.

The Project focuses on ten critical dimensions of our health care system covering the availability, quality, and cost of care, the overall health of Americans, and the dynamism of the system. The Project examines the evolution of these aspects of our system over time. It also assesses the status of these dimensions of the system with respect to subgroups of the population, with a particular emphasis on vulnerable populations.

HHS’s Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation has developed the Health System Measurement Project to ensure a robust monitoring system through which people inside and outside government can assess how the system is doing and identify areas that need improvement. One important purpose of the Project is to track the consequences of implementation of The Affordable Care Act across this broad set of dimensions of the health system.
About the Topical Areas

The measures are divided into the following ten topical areas:

Access to Care
