In an attempt to keep government accountable for its actions, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has made available a web-based tool for the public to monitor and measure how the healthcare system performs.

The Health System Measurement Project will seek to allow policymakers, providers and the public to develop consistent data-driven views of changes in critical U.S. health system indicators bringing together data sets from across the federal government that span topical areas, such as access to care, cost and affordability, prevention and health IT, HHS stated in a release.

The tool presents indicators by population characteristics, such as age, sex, income level, insurance coverage and geography.
