The Michigan Emergency Department Improvement Collaborative (MEDIC) is a growing statewide quality improvement project funded by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan/Blue Care Network and housed at the University of Michigan. The project’s goals include expanding the participating hospitals in the network, continuing to develop the data collection and reporting infrastructure, building future quality improvement measures, and changing physician practice through regular collaborative wide meetings and robust outcome measurement. Several quality initiatives are currently underway, primarily related to measuring the appropriateness of diagnostic imaging in both pediatric and adult populations.
The key job responsibilities of the MEDIC Senior Statistician will be to provide direction and management of the data analyses to measure quality improvement for participating hospitals. This work will also require collaborating with the data registry subcontractor to ensure that participating sites are reporting data in an accurate and timely manner as specified by the MEDIC Coordinating Center and registry subcontractor.
This position will also be shared with other tasks supported by on-going externally funded grant work using primarily Medicare data to evaluate outcomes and costs related to care delivered in the emergency department.
