  • Understanding the basics of the ED-1 and ED-2 measures, including population and sampling
  • Reviewing currently available critical access hospital data for ED-1 and ED-2 
  • Discussing suggested best practices for quality improvement for ED-1 and ED-2

In addition, the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) will provide updates on the newly added antibiotic stewardship measure requirements, NHSN enrollment, and upcoming changes to MBQIP Data Reports. The Rural Quality Improvement Technical Assistance Center (RQITA) will provide updates on an upcoming technical expert panel focused on the Emergency Department Transfer Communication (EDTC) measure.

MBQIP VKG webinars are intended to provide a forum for state Flex Program personnel and subcontractors to share MBQIP successes, discuss challenges and brainstorm strategies to assist hospitals toward reporting, participating, improving and excelling across the four quality domains of patient safety, outpatient care, patient engagement and care transitions. Topics for discussion are determined based on MBQIP Data Reports, technical assistance trends and requests.
