The Michigan Anticoagulation Quality Improvement Initiative (MAQI2) is a multicenter collaborative of anticoagulation clinics across the state of Michigan.  MAQI2 seeks to improve the safety, quality of care and outcomes of patients requiring anticoagulation.

De-identified data from patients receiving anticoagulant therapy from six participating outpatient clinics (UMHS, Henry Ford Medical Center, Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, Huron Valley Sinai in Commerce, and Memorial Healthcare in Owosso) is entered into a data registry at the MAQI2 Coordinating Center located within the Michigan Cardiovascular Outcomes Research and Reporting Program (MCORRP) at the University of Michigan.  Data collected includes: demographics, co-morbidities, lab values, and information on warfarin management. Outcomes such as bleeding events, ED visits and hospitalizations are also entered into the database.

Several quality metrics are used to compare performance between sites. Participating sites meet on a quarterly basis to review quality metrics, share Best Practices, and learn about the most recent anticoagulation management guidelines and research. Quality improvement initiatives are conducted to address poor performance at specific sites or across the entire collaborative.
