Share |


The Michigan Quality Improvement Network (MQIN) is the Health Center Control Network (HCCN) for Michigan. MQIN is responsible for providing support to 40 of Michigan’s community health centers to provide the best care for their patients. Network members receive training and technical assistance from MQIN staff and expert consultants to improve performance, optimize resources, and leverage influence to create a supportive environment for health centers.


Each member health center designates a staff member as their MQIN Champion. This person acts as a liaison for information and the main contact point. Champions are eligible to sit on the MQIN Committee, which has representation in all areas of health centers including dental, medical, quality, and health information.


The work of MQIN is governed by a leadership committee thathas participating health center representation from different areas and backgrounds including clinical, quality, health information technology, and administration.



To promote enhanced sharing of health care information, expertise, tools, and resources to address key clinical, financial, and operational needs through greater program integration.
