NRHP facilitates a Quality Improvement (QI) Network focused on advancing the quality of care in Nevada’s Critical Access Hospitals. As the subcontractor on the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) Program and Nevada SHIP Program grants, NRHP works closely with Nevada State Office of Rural Health to assist members with quality reporting and improvement.
“The Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) is a quality improvement activity under the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) grant program of the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP). The goal of MBQIP is to improve the quality of care provided in critical access hospitals (CAHs), by increasing 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.”
