AFMC’s Medicaid Quality Improvement (MQI) team works directly with health care providers on specific projects to improve patient care and compliance. Projects are selected for each state fiscal year in conjunction with Arkansas Medicaid and are based on data analysis and research that demonstrates improvement in the project area can be achieved through provider/patient education and awareness.
Once the project is selected, tools and materials are developed for both patients and health care professionals. Team members meet with providers to assess the provider/practice’s needs and offer real-world guidance and assistance.
