Quality Advisory Committees
BCBSND's MediQHome Adult and Pediatric Quality Advisory Committees provide a forum for collaboration and communication about improving the quality of health care in North Dakota. The committees have broad representation including patients, consumers and physicians.
Committee members help determine quality measurements, metrics and performance standards for the MediQHome program.
The committees are comprised of BCBSND executive staff, North Dakota providers and physician representatives from various specialty societies that endorse the Patient Centered Medical Home concept. The specialty societies include the American Board of Family Medicine, American Board of Pediatrics, American Board of Internal Medicine and the North Dakota Medical Association.
In addition, the committees include a consumer member to provide representation of our consumers' needs and expectations and a process improvement administrative representative from participating entities.
BCBSND's chief medical officer, or designee, chairs the committees. Appropriate BCBSND staff is available for ongoing support.
Participation Term and Meeting Frequency
Committee participation is limited to three 2-year terms. The committees meet quarterly.
