Quality and Accountability
Provides input on MHA policy issues related to safety, quality management and compliance issues, including performance improvement and accreditation/regulatory compliance. The committee also identifies, develops and recommends policy solutions, guided by the MHA data principles, to position the MHA as the primary source for hospital and health care data and information. As delegated by the MHA Board of Trustees, the committee will provide member feedback for the www.verifymicare.org website, including measure addition, removal and maintenance.
The committee will routinely review accreditation standards and policy changes that affect providers as proposed by organizations such as the Joint Commission, MPRO, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Additionally, facilitate MHA feedback to national quality initiatives including those of the AHA, National Quality Forum and the Joint Commission.
