Overview
Critical access hospitals continue to face many challenges including collecting and reporting data, measuring their outcomes against other CAHs, and implementing quality improvement initiatives. This event will offer CAHs best practices and enhanced strategies for improving outcomes and providing the highest quality care to their patients. Of focus for this event will be addressing the MBQIP measures as they relate to these topic areas:

  • Improving patient safety in CAHs and the community by ensuring all health care providers and eligible patient populations receive their influenza vaccination;
  • Improving patient experience of care through use of the HCAHPS survey;
  • Improving transitions of care from the CAH to other health care settings; and
  • Improving care provided in CAH outpatient settings to improve patient outcomes.

A travel reimbursement of up to $225.00 for ONE individual per CAHQI hospital will be provided, however, you may send additional participants. Please register each participant separately.

Target Audience
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of quality leaders, chief nursing officers and other leaders at critical access hospitals.

Objectives for the event include:

  1. Describe the importance of quality and patient safety from a CEO’s perspective to engage Board members, leaders and staff in the work.
  2. Describe how the Medical Staff Officer’s role engages other physicians, leaders and the staff to strive for improvement in quality and patient safety.
  3. Discuss how data and performance improvement wins can be used to market the CAH within their region.
