MARCQI is a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network supported collaborative that began in 2012.
MARCQI has created a statewide quality improvement infrastructure by developing a consortium of hospitals in Michigan that engage in quality improvement activities for hip and knee replacement procedures.
Participation in MARCQI is a requirement of the Blue Distinction Center (BDC) of Excellence for Knee and Hip surgery.
Being a part of the collaborative is an exciting opportunity to improve care to Michigan’s orthopedic patients and reduce cost through reduced complications and establishment of best practices.
We have the opportunity to develop a quality improvement infrastructure in preparation for the coming era of value-based healthcare.
