Purchasers are interested in quality of care and performance information for a number of reasons including helping purchasers
to make value-based purchasing decisions, holding health plans and providers accountable, and monitoring the care received
by enrollees. Interviews with purchasers were conducted in several geographic areas. Purchasers included in the study were
large employers, business coalitions, and governments. Objectives of the study were to determine what performance measurement
initiatives large purchasers have established, to explore how large purchasers use the results of their performance measurement
initiatives, and to examine how these purchasers interact and share information in their respective markets.
