The Montcalm Care Network has adopted, and is committed to, Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement (QAPI) philosophy and principles that achieves the organization’s mission, vision and values and through ongoing measurement and interventions, improvement in aspects of clinical care and non-clinical services that can be expected to affect consumer health status, quality of life, and satisfaction.
Consumer Experience with Services
Consumer perception of care information is vital to improving quality of care, creating better linkages between processes and outcomes of care, increasing provider accountability, and refining risk management strategies. It is the goal of the Montcalm Care Network that consumer perception of care shall be one of overall satisfaction of services. Consumers are periodically surveyed regarding their experience with services. This includes getting feedback at the start of service, periodically throughout their service experience, and after service ends. Information on these survey findings can be found at these links:
Quality assessment and performance improvement is a continuous process. It involves measuring the functioning of important processes and services, and, when indicated, identifying changes that enhance performance. These changes are incorporated into new or existing work processes, products, or services with monitoring of performance to ensure improvements are sustained. Specific performance indicators are selected and monitored by MCN, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and our regional entity Mid-State Health Network (MSHN). Measures align with the quadruple aim of our Strategic Plan– for Better Care, Better Outcomes, Better Value and a Collaborative Effective Workforce.
