MSQC Quality Improvement

In order to harness the lessons we learn from the data into real-world improvements in surgical outcomes, the MSQC chooses a number of Quality Improvement initiatives to focus on each year, including those included in the Pay for Performance Scorecard.

MSQC QI Toolkits

The following toolkits were developed as a result of our quality improvement efforts and are offered as a resource to our members and other hospitals embarking on quality improvement projects on these topics.


MSQC Care Pathway Development

MSQC is working to develop specific care pathways for colon surgery, hernia, laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and hysterectomy. As a collaborative we will identify the most effective care pathways across our state and help hospitals implement these best practices.

Details of our ongoing care pathway work is available here.
