Overview

The Michigan Emergency Department Improvement Collaborative (MEDIC) is dedicated to improving the quality of emergency department (ED) care across the state of Michigan. Launched in 2015, MEDIC is an integrated adult and pediatric, emergency medicine-led Collaborative Quality Initiative (CQI) supported by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network. We leverage our shared knowledge and experience combined with timely feedback on quality measure performance to improve the care for our patients. Participating EDs submit data to a clinical registry maintained by the MEDIC Coordinating Center, and together we collect and analyze data, identify best practices, and improve our collective performance.
