Collaborative Quality Initiatives
Collaborative Quality Initiatives transform care processes, improve outcomes, save money, enhance community well being.
What is a Collaborative Quality Initiative (CQI)?
• Statewide quality improvement initiatives, developed and executed by Michigan physicians and hospital partners with funding and support from BCBSM and the HMO subsidiary, Blue Care Network
• In most cases, a CQI project relies on a comprehensive clinical registry which includes patient risk factors, processes of care, and outcomes of care
• Physicians, hospitals, and health systems collaborate to measure and improve the standard of care in Michigan by focusing on reduction of errors, prevention of complications, and improvement of patient outcomes
• CQIs promote partnerships with physicians, physician groups and hospitals to create strong collaboration and reward systems for the transformation of health care.
