MHA-member hospitals that submitted second quarter data for the Management & Productivity Report can access their completed reports online through a secure, password-protected website. Access to this report is limited to hospitals that participate in HIDI’s voluntary management and productivity program. The reports are located on HIDI Analytic Advantage® in the Management & Productivity folder under the Finance and Policy tab. Contacts from the participating hospitals have been notified by email. Staff may download and save the reports to a secure location on their networks or PCs. The data are encrypted on the site and also during the transmission from HIDI. Once the data have been transferred, they must be secured according to the hospital’s security procedures.

MHA Develops Policy Repository To Support Workplace Violence Prevention

Staff Contacts: Jackie Gatz or Jane Drummond

MHA’s S.A.F.E.R. Initiative, which provides guidance and resources to foster collaboration and develop safer care environments and resilient communities, has prioritized activities throughout the past 12 months to support Missouri hospitals in mitigating the increased prevalence of violence within hospitals, specifically directed at the workforce. At the request of our membership, MHA staff has sought policies to assist hospitals with validating approaches to safe care environments. The policies, which have been redacted, now are available to members on our website.
Safe + Sound Week
This week, MHA is participating in the Occupational Health and Safety Administration’s Safe and Sound Week to further demonstrate our ongoing support of Missouri hospitals’ efforts to create safe environments to both deliver and receive quality health care. MHA staff will be sharing resources throughout the week on social media and through this forum.

Consider This ...

In any 18-month period, 33 percent to 50 percent of people with diabetes have diabetes distress. The overwhelming feelings of diabetes distress may cause people with diabetes to slip into unhealthy habits, stop checking blood sugar and skip doctor's appointments.
