Revamped MHA Keystone Center website serves as public health care resource
The MHA Keystone Center recently relaunched its website with an updated design, including new navigation options and content. This comprehensive site reflects the ongoing alignment of the MHA’s patient safety, quality and transparency efforts through the MHA Keystone Center, MHA Patient Safety Organization and the online data transparency search engine (formerly MI Hospital Inform), and replaces the entities’ previous websites.
The website is organized to address the unique needs of patients and providers and houses information including hospital quality and charge information, background on Michigan’s patient safety and quality efforts, tips for choosing a hospital, and more. The new site celebrates and communicates the hospital patient safety and quality efforts under way in Michigan and reflects the national presence and impact of the MHA Keystone Center.
About the MHA Keystone Center
Founded in March 2003, the MHA Keystone Center brings together Michigan hospitals and state and national patient safety experts to develop and implement evidence-based best practices to improve the safety and quality of care. Some of the world’s most prestigious medical peer review journals have affirmed the programs are saving lives, reducing errors and cutting health care costs. MHA Keystone Center projects are funded by voluntary contributions from MHA member hospitals, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, and the state and federal governments.
