The Kansas Health Institute is an active participant in the State Health Policy Centers Collaborative. The Collaborative is a membership organization of state-focused health policy centers in both academic and non-academic settings in more than a dozen states. In partnership with the Commonwealth Fund, the Collaborative is disseminating and discussing the Aiming Higher: Results from a State Scorecard on Health System Performance report in several states. It is the hope of KHI that the release of the Scorecard and the opportunity for a discussion about its relevance and application in Kansas will help to spark a sustained conversation about the measurement and improvement of health system performance in Kansas.
