MQA by the Numbers

Full Story
This year the Florida Department of Health celebrated 125 years of public health and has seen remarkable successes in a variety of areas. The Department’s Division of Medical Quality Assurance (MQA) plays an integral role in this success as it strives to become the leader in health care quality regulation while helping Florida become the healthiest state in the nation. MQA regulates 41 different professions under more than 100 different types of licenses and in conjunction with 22 boards and eight councils; the Division regulates and disciplines health care providers for the Department. Better and faster processes are always a goal, so MQA reviews and revises its business practices regularly while keeping good health care providers on the job and stopping unlicensed and dangerous people from practicing health care.

The Florida Department of Health reports that the 2014–2015 flu season is off to an early start and Floridians are urged to get vaccinated to protect themselves and others against the flu.
