Health Metrics

The IRIS initiative collaborated with the Center for Health Market Innovations (CHMI) to convene a working group comprising health delivery practitioners, impact investors, and field experts who provided input and advice to establish a set of specific metrics for health-focused organizations. These metrics and the working group's rationale for inclusion are summarized below.

For more detail on the alignment, see the executive summary and full report that summarize the working group’s process and recommended metrics, available for download on the CHMI user registry page.  

As with all IRIS metrics, it is important to state that interpretation of these metrics must also take into account other aspects of a company's context, and changes over time. Stand alone numbers cannot by themselves indicate positive or negative social value, or necessarily be compared across companies or products.
