From Susan

Going into the second half of the year are many conferences, in-person and virtual, listed under Upcoming Industry Events. For all of you members of the Health Plan Alliance, Sonia Frazier and I will be presenting NCQA’s Health Equity standards at the Fly-In conference scheduled for August 21 and 22, 2023.

ARE YOU PLANNING TO ATTEND NCQA’S HEALTH INNOVATION SUMMIT IN ORLANDO October 23 – 25, 2023? As I did pre-pandemic, I will be hosting a client dinner, currently anticipated after sessions on October 24. If you plan to attend, please let me know so I can make accommodations accordingly.

It’s that time of year, July 1, when the 2023 NCQA standards are in effect. Are you on track? See MHR Quality Insights below for two updates on System Controls and Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

Behavioral Health and Health Equity are critical topics to promote population health. In our Calendar of Observances, we highlight July as National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.  Read about ways to support mental health equity, and know that MHR’s consultants are available to support your organization’s needs for NCQA MBHO & Health Equity/Health Equity Plus Accreditation.

Also, if you haven’t done so, see our Blogs on MHR’s website,, where we feature discussions on current topics important to NCQA accreditation.

Are you ready for a Discovery Call to learn how MHR can support your NCQA goals?  MHR is a premier company consulting in NCQA Accreditation for 32 years.

Contact me to see how we can help you.
