Multidisciplinary Advisory Group
Composition (representation/diverse experts) – involve multiple stakeholders
E.g., Health Department, healthcare facilities (i.e., approximately 2-3 mentor hospitals), payors, purchasers, consumers, hospital associations, quality improvement organizations, professional organizations
Not all hospitals participating in the Collaborative should be part of the Multidisciplinary Advisory Group – just the 2-3 mentor hospitals
Consider formalizing structure (i.e., a charter or a memorandum of understanding) – including leadership (Chair, Co-Chair), operating rules, other policies (e.g., conflicts of interest, financial relationships), etc.
Note: the more people involved, the greater the number of communications and coordination needed.
