Our Mission

The Michigan Quality Improvement Consortium will establish and implement a core set of clinical practice guidelines and performance measures. The interventions designed and implemented by each plan to improve consistent delivery of services will be at the discretion of individual plans, but guidelines, performance goals, measurement methodology, and performance reporting will be standardized.

Current News

The MQIC 2014 Annual Performance Measurement Report is complete. The report provides an MQIC community rate on over 240 HEDIS® and non-HEDIS measures, with all 13 participating health plans submitting their NCQA HEDIS® program results. We are pleased to continue to collaborate on increasing positive health outcomes by developing and maintaining evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, providing tools for use in the office setting, and combining measure results so we can view Michigan as a community in order to determine the quality of care people are receiving across the state.

MQIC guidelines assist by providing evidence-based recommendations in order for you to be able to focus on your patients. To help your patients increase their knowledge and commitment in their overall health, feel free to pass along MQIC guidelines and refer them to the website at www.mqic.org.
