Quality Improvement Council (QI)

The Regional QI Committee/Council meets a minimum of two times a year.  This group includes representatives of perinatal providers in the community including physicians, nurses, educators/CNS's, social workers and hospital administrators. The Committee reviews region-specific data and determines quality improvement projects based on MCAH priorities with outcome improvement potential. Issues of special interest include consumer and professional education, discharge planning and home care, maternal and neonatal transport and referral, consumer access to care, legislation, data collection and evaluation, and specific clinical issues (e.g. diabetes). Currently the committee has formed a Disaster Task Force that is working on a Regional Disaster Plan and Toolkit.
