Leading Michigan to Better Health

This section of the Newsroom is dedicated to sharing patient safety and quality news from the MHA Keystone Center and MHA quality initiatives. 

Since 2017, the MHA Keystone Center, in conjunction with the Great Lakes Partners for Patients Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (GLPP HIIN), has offered simulations to give hands-on experience related to sepsis and critical care. 
The MHA Keystone Center, in partnership with the Great Lakes Partners for Patients Hospital Improvement Innovation Network, recently hosted two interactive events in Livonia that focused on a healthcare innovation initiative launched by the Illinois Health and Hospital Association (IHA).
September is Sepsis Awareness Month and the MHA Keystone Center is ramping up activities to increase sepsis awareness within hospital walls and broadly across communities.
The MHA Keystone Center PSO Root Cause Analysis & Action (RCA²) Workshop, which will be held 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 8 at the James B. Henry Center for Executive Development, will introduce MHA members to RCA² elements and develop a foundation to identify and classify adverse events.
Sept. 8 is the last day to register for the Implementation Science: Health Performance Improvement Certification Course.
The needs of vulnerable and unique patient populations can be met only by working to identify and eliminate health disparities and addressing the role of unconscious bias in healthcare delivery. 
Addressing health disparities to ensure that all people receive the care they need, no matter their race or economic background, is currently one of the biggest challenges facing the American healthcare system. 
​Mobile health clinics are essentially a doctor’s office or medical clinic on wheels. They’re often located in a motor coach bus or recreation vehicle and allow healthcare teams to travel to remote areas or regions that are underserved.
Michelle Norcross, MSA, senior director of safety and quality, MHA Keystone Center, discusses how the upcoming Implementation Science Healthcare Performance Improvement Certification Course will help MHA-member hospitals and health systems close the gap between recommended and provided care.
Clostridium difficile (C. diff) is one of the most commonly transmitted healthcare-acquired infections. According to a 2015 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, C. diff causes an estimated 500,000 infections and 15,000 deaths annually in the United States.
