News to Know – Week of June 18

Posted on June 16, 2018

Upcoming events and important healthcare news for the week of June 18:

  • Late June 13, the state Legislature completed its work on several bills as it wrapped up session prior to breaking for the summer. Among the legislation being sent to the governor is a budget omnibus bill, which contains the fiscal year 2018-2019 budgets for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and several other state departments. Also awaiting the governor’s signature is SB 897, which will require able-bodied individuals between 19 and 62 years of age to work an average of 80 hours per month to continue to qualify for healthcare coverage under the Medicaid expansion, the Healthy Michigan Plan. For more information, contact Chris Mitchell at the MHA.
  • The MHA Keystone Center Patient Safety Organization’s Root Cause Analysis and Action (RCA2) Training will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at Bronson Methodist Hospital, Kalamazoo. The one-day, interactive training will introduce the RCA² elements and develop the foundation for correctly identifying and classifying events. The training also features education on proper team assembly, RCA² process timing and an applied look into event review methodologies, with attention to development and implementation of effective corrective actions to prevent future harm. For more information, contact the MHA Keystone Center Patient Safety Organization.
