"The two words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." -- Sydney J. Harris

Applications Sought for Measurement and Reporting Committee (MARC)

MNCM’s Measurement and Reporting Committee (MARC) will have openings for several new members beginning February 2018. Members are being sought for the following positions:

  • Consumer (two openings)
  • Medical Group – Medium Metro (one opening)
  • Medical Group – Large Metro (two openings)
  • Medical Group – Single Specialty (one opening)

New Members will replace current members whose terms end in December 2017. In addition to filling the criteria noted above, other information that will be considered includes measurement and quality improvement experience, race and ethnic diversity and background in nursing or as another member of the care team. MNCM is interested in recruiting new members, so a variety of community stakeholders have an opportunity to serve on this important committee.

The MARC is a committee of the MNCM Board of Directors with a broad membership of community stakeholders. The committee’s purpose is to recommend measurement priorities and specifications to the Board and to recommend guiding principles and/or policies for MNCM’s public reporting of measures. The MARC is supported by Measure Development Work Groups established by MNCM staff at the direction of the MARC. Work groups are charged with recommending draft measurement specifications and data collection plans.

This committee meets monthly. Members are required to attend/actively participate in at least 75 percent of meetings. Each member serves a two-year term, and has a three-term limit. MARC members may also be asked to serve on a Measure Development Work Group.
