Report on the Performance of The Massachusetts Health Care System
The Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) monitors the Massachusetts health care system and provides information to support improvements in quality, affordability, access, and outcomes. In 2013, the Massachusetts health care system performed favorably on a number of indicators.
Notably, the overall per capita growth in Total Health Care Expenditures (THCE) was below the Commonwealth's 2013 health care cost growth benchmark. Also, commercial premium levels and member out-of-pocket cost-sharing did not increase from 2012, while benefit levels remained steady.
