Stratis Health

This Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) Virtual Knowledge Group (VKG) webinar will provide a networking opportunity for state Flex Programs to brainstorm Quality Improvement projects.

Learning objectives include:

  • Participate in group sharing of ideas regarding the Quality Improvement project for this year’s Flex Non-competing Continuation.
  • Hear updates regarding CMS Hospital Star Ratings and electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs).
  • Hear general MBQIP updates.

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 the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and coordinated by Rural Quality Improvement Technical Assistance (RQITA), a program of Stratis Health.

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