As quality professionals, we understand the value of continuing education. Without consistent development of our skill sets, we risk not keeping up with the latest changes and best practices. This in turn has the potential to impact not only our hospital outcomes but most importantly the outcomes of the patients we serve. SDAHO is committed to assisting the state’s quality professional by offering and/or promoting educational events throughout the year.
On April 19, SDAHO will be hosting a Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) Workshop in Sioux Falls. The event, MBQIP: Quality Measures Workshop, Quality Data and Measures Simplified will feature subject matter experts Robyn Carlson, RHIA, CPHQ, Quality Reporting Specialist from Stratis Health and SDAHO’s own, Loretta Bryan, BSN, RN, CPHQ and Michelle Hofer, BSN, RN, CPHQ, Clinical Improvement Consultants. In addition, we are pleased to announce that Lindsey Karlson, Director of Programs and Training, at Community Healthcare Association of the Dakotas (CHAD) will be presenting on process improvement. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Michelle Hoffman, Rural Hospital Program Coordinator, SD Office of Rural Health, and network with other quality professionals from around the state.
This day-long event is targeted at South Dakota Critical Access Hospitals and is being sponsored and supported by the South Dakota Office of Rural Health. SDAHO is gracious to the SD Office of Rural Health for their continued support and dedication to improving the education and training of quality professionals in the state.
SDAHO’s Quality team is working hard to make this event a success. We hope that many of our quality professionals from across the state take part in this interactive, fun, learning opportunity. If you are registered for this event, we look forward to spending the day learning and growing with you. If you missed the registration deadline and would like to attend, please contact either Loretta Bryan at Loretta.Bryan@sdaho.org or Michelle Hofer at Michelle.Hofer@sdaho.org to discuss.
