NEWS & EVENTS
We have been reporting the past few months on the objectives and successes of the MAX Series and the two MHVC teams — St. Luke’s Cornwall and St. Joseph’s and their respective partners — that already participated. We are pleased to announce that one MHVC partner, HealthQuest, was selected to participate in the next round of the MAX Series. The eight-month program is the fourth round of the MAX series, and continues to focus on rapid-cycle continuous improvement with the objective of decreasing high-utilizer 30-day readmissions and/or hospital inpatient admissions. The MAX program has now launched the first of three series of Train-the-Trainer workshops, kicking off with a session that took place February 7-9, 2017, in Albany. Participants will attend three in-person workshops that will take place over a six-month period. The topic of the February session was “Quick Wins.” The second, in March, will look at detailed process redesign; the third, in May, will focus on driving results.
