Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Program (MBQIP)


The Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) is a quality improvement activity under the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) grant program. The goal of MBQIP is to improve the quality of care provided in small, rural Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs). This is being done by increasing the voluntary quality data reporting by CAHs, and then driving quality improvement activities based on the data. This project provides an opportunity for individual hospitals to look at their own data, measure their outcomes against other CAHs and partner with other hospitals in the state around quality improvement initiatives to improve outcomes and provide the highest quality care to each and every one of their patients.

QHA provides technical assistance for MBQIP with the web-based tool, REDCap, for data collection and reporting associated with Emergency Department Transfer Communications (EDTC). QHA also supports data collection, analysis and reporting for North Dakota’s CAHs.
