MHQP 2017 Physician Council

The MHQP Physician Council consists of medical directors from a diverse group of physician organizations across Massachusetts that has come together under MHQP's umbrella. Their top priority is to guide MHQP in establishing a collective set of clinical and service quality improvement priorities that could best be accomplished through collaboration with other MHQP health care stakeholders. Two members of the Council sit on MHQP's Board of Directors.

The Physician Network Council believes MHQP has demonstrated its ability to be a trusted model of collaboration that will incorporate the physician perspective and strive to ensure the validity of all data/information used in assessing quality improvement activities.
