Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP)ED Transfer Communication Abstraction Training July 2014 Background The Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) created the Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) as a Flex Grant Program activity within the core area of quality improvement. • The primary goal of this project is for CAHs to implement quality improvement initiatives to improve their patient care and operations. • MBQIP provides Flex funding to support Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) with technical assistance and national benchmarks to improve health care outcomes. • CAHs opting to participate are requested to report a specific set of annual measures determined by ORHP timeline and measures and engage in quality improvement projects to benefit patient care. Accountable Care This initiative takes a proactive and visionary approach to ensure CAHs are well-equipped and prepared to meet future quality legislation. • Additionally, MBQIP fulfills the Flex grant Quality Improvement (QI) objectives regarding Hospital Compare reporting, and supporting participation in various multi-hospital QI initiatives. • The main emphasis of this project is putting patients first by focusing on improving health care services, processes and administration. MBQIP Goal: To implement informed quality improvement projects to improve patient care and CAH;s through data collection, leadership and support “We improve what we measure” Seamless Care: Safe patient transitions between facilities Ensuring appropriate and timely care beyond organizational silos is essential to transforming health care. Avoiding transition of care errors
  • Information silos and poor communication between settings
  • Confusion about care management; coordination across settings
  • Medications Errors can occur during times of transition: upon admission, transfer, or discharge of a patient.
  • Avoiding transition of care errors Communication means more than person to person, although this is of course an enormously important. Communication also means access by all the players to mission critical clinical information. In our highly fragmented or “siloed” healthcare delivery system, this is most often the greatest barrier to effective transitions of care.
