Collaborative Quality Initiatives

Collaborative Quality Initiatives

The Collaborative Quality Initiatives are partnerships between Blue Cross, participating hospitals, physicians and the coordinating center that leads the program. 

Hospitals and physicians share data to develop best practices around areas of care with high costs and high variation. Hospital and physician performance is not judged and Blue Cross never sees individual hospital or physician data. The data is used only to identify areas of opportunity for participating hospitals and physicians. 

Currently, there are 20 CQIs that cover areas of care, including bariatric surgery and arthroplasty. They are: 

  • Michigan Cardiovascular Consortium - Percutaneous Coronary Intervention
  • Michigan Society of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons Quality Collaborative
  • Michigan Bariatric Surgery Consortium 
  • Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative
  • Michigan Breast Oncology Quality Initiative
  • Michigan Cardiovascular Consortium - Vascular Interventions Collaborative 
  • Lean for Clinical Redesign Collaborative Quality Initiative 
  • Michigan Anticoagulation Quality Improvement Initiative 
  • Michigan Oncology Quality Consortium 
  • Hospital Medicine Safety Consortium 
  • Michigan Trauma Quality Improvement Project
  • Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative
  • Michigan Radiation Oncology Quality Consortium 
  • Michigan Arthoplasty Registry Collaborative for Quality Improvement
  • Michigan Spine Surgery Improvement Collaborative 
  • Michigan Value Collaborative
  • Anesthesiology Performance Improvement and Reporting Exchange
  • Michigan Pharmacists Transforming Care and Quality Consortium 
  • Michigan Emergency Department Improvement Collaborative
  • Integrated Michigan Patient-Centered Alliance on Care Transitions
