SDAHO Partners with Office of Rural Health

SDAHO and the South Dakota Office of Rural Health (SD ORH) joined together to provide the first CART Bootcamp​ for the 38 Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) in the State. CMS Abstraction & Reporting Tool (CART) is an application for the collection and analysis of quality improvement data. CART allows hospitals to manage and evaluate quality improvement efforts. CART is used to collect data for the MBQIP (Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project) which is the quality improvement activity under the Office of Rural Health Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (FLEX) grant program.  

Both SDAHO and SD ORH had noticed a need to assist CAHs in understanding the MBQIP program as well as support for abstraction, submission, and analysis of quality data. “This bootcamp provided an opportunity to level set [efforts in the MBQIP program] for all CAHs”, stated Jennifer Kok, SDAHO RN Improvement Advisor. SDAHO is excited to further support all South Dakota CAHs in quality improvement and to partner with the SD ORH Rural Hospital Program Coordinator, Michelle Hoffman.
The bootcamp had 40 participants with 25 CAH’s represented.
