This Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) Virtual Knowledge Group (VKG) webinar will provide a networking opportunity for state Flex Programs to learn more about the services available to support state Flex Programs and their hospitals with MBQIP. This event is supported by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and coordinated by Rural Quality Improvement Technical Assistance (RQITA), a program of Stratis Health.

Learning objectives include:

  • Explore the MBQIP Fundamentals Guide for State Flex Programs and understand how to use it.
  • Review available resources to support MBQIP at the state and hospital level.
  • Understand the role of RQITA and services available to support your work.
  • Discuss additional MBQIP resource and support needs and requests.

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

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.
