MSQC has a new paper in Learning Health Systems detailing “how to start, replicate, scale, and sustain a learning health system for quality improvement, based on the experience of the Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative”.
The paper, and the supplemental toolkit, originated from a University of Michigan Department of Learning Health Sciences grant to study lessons learned from a decade of collaborative quality improvement work in Michigan, and to provide practical information for other groups interested in implementing regional collaborative improvement efforts.
Greta Krapohl PhD, RN, lead author and MSQC Associate Director, said
“Special thanks to the coordinating center team, my esteemed coauthors , the awesome surgeons and nurses of the MSQC the UM Dept of Learning Health Sciences and BCBSM Value Partnerships, for making Quality Improvement not just a slogan, but a reality.”
