MHQP is here to help provider organizations, health plans, policy makers and patients improve the quality of patient care experiences in Massachusetts and beyond. These sections link to the many unique and valued resources we offer to support the important work of healthcare professionals who work hard every day to improve care for patients:

Clinical Guidelines

MHQP promotes quality healthcare through the ongoing development of consistent, evidence-based, best practices guidelines that are used and supported by a broad range of providers and other healthcare stakeholders.

Patient Experience Survey

The MHQP Patient Experience Survey is the only statewide survey of patients in Massachusetts which asks patients about experiences with their doctor or their child’s doctor, and other staff in the doctor’s office.

MA Provider Directory

MHQP’s Massachusetts Provider Database (MPD) is the only valid data source available that maps primary care and specialty providers statewide to the practice site, medical group and network in which they provide care.

Resources for Empowered Patients

The site lists the tools, guidelines, and information you may need to manage your health, interact with clinicians and the healthcare system, and find answers to questions you may have. The articles and links included under each topic will help you become a more empowered and engaged patient/consumer of healthcare services.

Compare Practices

HealthcareCompassMA is MHQP’s consumer-facing website designed to help patients compare patient experience at primary care practices across the state. By using this unique resource, you can find the primary care doctors that are right for you and your family members and get the healthcare that best suits your needs.
