In addition, the Department of Hospital Quality (DHQ) provides the group with regular updates on progress toward BMC strategic goals so that we may remain agile and support the improvement efforts across the continuum of care.

This allows us to track these trends and work together to address each element of the solution, from evidence base, to practice, to oversight and accountability.
