Intended Audience: State Flex Program personnel and designated subcontractors

This MBQIP VKG will provide a networking opportunity for state Flex Programs to discuss tactics for supporting critical access hospitals (CAH) with quality improvement on additional MBQIP measures. Learning objectives include:

  • Learn how the Nebraska Flex Program is supporting CAHs in reducing falls and related harm
  • Learn how the Michigan Flex Program is supporting CAHs in reducing readmissions and healthcare-associated infections
  • Discuss approaches state Flex programs have taken to address the additional MBQIP measures, including through collaborative partner efforts

Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) Virtual Knowledge Group (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.
