CAH Quality Network

ND CAH Quality Network LogoThe North Dakota Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Quality Network was established in 2007 through the voluntary work of CAHs throughout the state of North Dakota. An executive committee of CAHs representatives serve as a decision making body and provide leadership to the members and oversight of the coordinators' efforts. A stakeholder committee, represented by statewide partner organizations, provides feedback and a link to increase communication.

The Network serves as a common place for North Dakota's CAHs to share best practices, tools, and resources related to providing quality of care. The Network supports quality improvement activities of the Network members and assists them with the Medicare Conditions of Participation. A goal of the Network is to improve information sharing and networking at the regional and state level among tertiary facilities and stakeholders to prevent duplication of efforts.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Network is to support ongoing performance improvement of North Dakota's CAHs.
