"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) has openings for two new members beginning February 2019. Members are being sought for the following positions:

  • Medical Group – Medium Metro (one opening)
  • Medical Group – Large Metro (one opening)

New members will replace current members whose terms end in December 2018. 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 health care background. MNCM is interested in recruiting new members so that a variety of community stakeholders have an opportunity to serve on this important committee.

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.

This committee meets monthly, except in January and July. Members are required to attend at least 75% 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. If you are interested, complete an application by the close of business on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Email applications to Anne Snowden, Director, Performance Measurement and Reporting.

After nominations are closed, MNCM staff will convene a committee to review applications and make selections. Our goal is to appoint new members by late January, after which all applicants and those selected as new members will be notified.
