Sandlot Solutions, a leading health record interoperability and analytics provider for communities and health systems, today signaled its support for the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) proposed streamlined set of 15 standardized measures and recommendations for their application. The new standards, outlined in Vital Signs: Core Metrics for Health and Health Care Progress, represent an important step in efforts to clarify, simplify and better benchmark how the United States is improving its health as a nation – and identify the top priorities for improved performance within the healthcare system.

Sandlot Solutions works with healthcare organizations and communities, helping prioritize and simplify efforts around achieving key measures to allow greater focus on the areas that matter most. Sandlot’s suite of technology solutions works to solve these challenges, streamlining clinical reporting and providing immediate visibility to quality analytics, outcomes and population trends.
