Quality and Accountability
The committee 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 healthcare 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 routinely reviews accreditation standards and policy changes that affect providers as proposed by organizations such as the Joint Commission, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Additionally, this committee facilitates MHA feedback regarding national quality initiatives including those of the American Hospital Association, National Quality Forum and the Joint Commission.
