MHA Keystone Center Holds 2017 Spring Workshop

Posted on May 30, 2017

MHA Keystone Center members participate in a group activity during the Spring Workshop. The Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA) Keystone Center held the 2017 Spring Workshop: Imparting Information and Increasing Awareness through Organizational Briefings, May 24 at the East Lansing Marriott at University Place.

The event was designed to help Great Lakes Partners for Patients (GLPP) Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) member hospitals learn how to use systematic, interdisciplinary daily organization briefings as well as implement and develop strong systems to improve and advance high reliability within their organizations.

In 2016, the MHA Keystone Center partnered with the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare to help Michigan hospitals develop strategies to improve organizational effectiveness and efficiency, customer satisfaction, compliance and organizational culture, while ensuring the best care is provided to every patient, every time.

The MHA Keystone Center works with members on a daily basis to achieve high reliability in healthcare as a next step to improve Michigan’s quality of care, reduce costs and minimize institutional risk for both patients and providers.

Over 80 MHA Keystone Center members participated, virtually and in-person, from more than 35 hospitals across Michigan and Illinois.  

The meeting began at 10 a.m. with opening remarks from Brian Peters, CEO, MHA, and Gary Roth, DO, chief medical officer, MHA, and featured speeches from Matthew Wain, MAS, COO, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston; Shannon Striebich, president, St. Joseph Mercy Oakland, Pontiac; and David Jahn, president & CEO, War Memorial Hospital, Sault Ste. Marie.

Attendees also participated in interactive sessions by the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare, which allowed them to develop action plans for their individual hospitals.

Many updates were shared via the MHA Keystone Center Twitter account throughout the workshop. Photos from the event are available via Facebook.
