The Michigan Arthroplasty Registry Collaborative Quality Initiative (MARCQI) is a group of orthopaedic surgeons and medical professionals dedicated to improving the quality of care for patients undergoing hip and knee replacement procedures in Michigan.
MARCQI has created a statewide quality improvement infrastructure by developing a consortium of hospitals in Michigan to engage in quality improvement activities for hip and knee joint replacement surgery procedures. Improved quality improves patient safety, reduces complications and reduces the cost of this care in the State of Michigan. The consortium improves the quality of care by addressing variations in patient outcomes related to hip and knee joint replacement surgery.
Support for MARCQI is provided by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network as part of the BCBSM Value Partnerships program.
