The committee meets on a regular basis to accomplish the following:
1. Examine patient cases with suboptimal parameters in order to find opportunities in quality improvement, system improvement, and provider education.
2. Review cases of hospitalized patients who develop morbidity or mortality while at Baystate, and further determine if proper Standards of Care were met.
In support of improving patient care, Baystate Health is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
