Keeping Score: Using Scorecards as Instruments of Policy Change

Wednesday, October 25th

Scorecards and rankings provide a platform for states to compare state-level performance over time on a wide range of health and LTSS measures. This session will explore two scorecards and the ways states have used them to improve performance. AARP’s Long-Term Services and Supports State Scorecard facilitates comparisons of LTSS system performance, while the Commonwealth Fund’s Scorecard on State Health System Performance compares states on a wide range of health measures in four domains. Two national experts will discuss their organization’s scorecards and a state official will describe how her state used scorecards to drive policy and population outcomes.
