What is ahead for MIBAC:
First, and foremost, research indicates that Collaborative Quality Initiatives work. There have been successes throughout the healthcare industry for more than two decades! Healthcare professionals have realized tangible improvements in processes and outcomes of care for their patients, as well as the added benefit of real savings passed on to employers and citizens of Michigan in general who incur the cost of medical care.
The value of participation in MIBAC that will help to create a registry, which will ultimately provide useful tools and treatment recommendations for the conservative management of low back pain with the application of evidence-based knowledge. More efficient and effective care, and better outcomes (e.g., less pain, quicker return to work and daily activity, better functional status) are the “center of the bulls-eye” goals for MIBAC. Improved scores on metrics of patient satisfaction, utilization, cost, and process of care quality mean better performance in PGIP, MIPS, and other payor-based pay-for-performance programs.
