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.

Guidelines, Measures and Tools Summary
Annually, MQIC provides a performance report which details MQIC-community rates on HEDIS®, CAHPS and MQIC-generated non-HEDIS measures. To further summarize the annual report, a Guidelines, Measures and Tools Summary document has been developed. This summary provides current MQIC results with a comparison to the previous year results, and also reports how well the MQIC-community compares to the national HEDIS average. The summary also lists all MQIC guidelines, measures, and tools that are available on the MQIC website. We hope you find this summary useful.

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.
