Michigan Social Health Interventions to Eliminate Disparities
MSHIELD addresses social health needs in patients across Michigan by linking healthcare and community partners to achieve equitable health outcomes for all.
MSHIELD is a CQI.
CQIs (Collaborative Quality Initiatives) address many of the most common and costly areas of surgical and medical care in Michigan. In each CQI, hospitals and physicians across the state collect, share and analyze data on patient risk factors, processes of care and outcomes of care, then design and implement changes to improve patient care.
These unique and successful organizations are funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan / Blue Care Network, and led by Michigan Medicine in partnership with health and human services organizations across the state of Michigan.
