Quality + Performance Improvement




our definition: how we are doing + how we can do better

4 key components

There are four key components to our work to ensure the best possible care:

  • health informatics: equipping staff to capture and use integrated clinical and administrative data to inform delivery of care
  • population health: caring for our clients in ways that also help prevent disease and prioritize those with chronic conditions
  • compliance: ensuring that we meet—and exceed—all standards for safe and effective care
  • performance improvement: monitoring, evaluating and improving—objectively and continuously—the quality of all that we do

  • constantly assessing client access to that care
  • constantly adjusting to do better

We call this work "performance improvement." Or just simply, PI.

We have 3 themes for our PI work in 2017— and within each of these themes, we have 3 goals...
