MEQAPI stands for Monitoring & Evaluation, Quality Assurance, and Process Improvement.

The MEQAPI tweetchat aims to give voice to a broad range of stakeholders in healthcare quality, and will include everyone from administrators to zoologists, and include physicians, nurses, researchers, bed czars, cleaners, and yes, patients and care-givers.

Three healthcare domains in which we might want to pay close attention are Care Policies, Care technologies, and care flow.

The following topics will be posed this week related to Health IT and how it relates to healthcare improvement and quality:

  1. What successes are there in Health IT – what is working well and how does that manifest
  2. What Health IT failed at least one element of Safety, Timely, Efficiency, Effectiveness, Equitability, Patient Centered – how
  3. What role should the government play in making Health IT improve healthcare cost, quality, and accessibility
  4. What role do the medical NGOs, journals, and professional bodies play in improving Health IT
  5. How can providers and patients drive improvements in Health IT

On an average year, the estimates are that between 90,000 and 400,000 patients in America die untimely deaths due to medical error and missed opportunities. (The earlier IHI studies estimated 90,000, and more recent research hints at 400,000). The toll of injury related to medical error runs into the millions, and the financial cost of waste, medically unnecessary care, and dealing with sequelae of mistakes runs into the billions of dollars.

While we may object to various technical aspects of the research papers, find fault with elements of the methodology, or just plan balk at the thought of physicians killing patients, clearly healthcare is in need of quality improvement.
