This Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) Virtual Knowledge Group (VKG)webinar will provide a networking opportunity for state Flex Programs to hear Flex Updates for Budget Year 3: MBQIP Quality Improvement Project.

Learning objectives include:

  • Learn about the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy's (FORHP) plans to help states increase the Flex focus on quality improvement efforts during budget year 3.
  • Discuss how FORHP’s plans align with previously discussed MBQIP refresh efforts.
  • Hear general MBQIP updates from FORHP and Rural Quality Improvement Technical Assistance (RQITA).

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. This event is supported by FORHP and coordinated by RQITA, a program of Stratis Health.

MBQIP VKG webinars are recorded and made available in the Flex Program Forum (log-in required).
