Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network launched a collaboration among hospitals across the state to improve anesthesiology practices, reduce anesthesiology-related complications and improve patient outcomes. University of Michigan Health System will serve as the coordinating center for data collection and analysis. This initiative includes funding for Michigan sites who are interested in joining ASPIRE.
Each year ASPIRE will only be able to recruit a limited number of hospitals. The criteria for choosing a hospital will be determined by the level of engagement from the site. One of the challenges is to ensure the department leadership, QI champions, and IT resoruces are fully engaged in the process.
The ASPIRE Recruitment period runs from May - July, please contact the ASPIRE Project Manager, Tory Lacca, for further information.
