Performance Improvement

We work to continuously make sure the people we serve receive the highest possible quality care, when they need it. 

We call this work "performance improvement." Or just simply, PI, which includes continuously: 

  • assessing the quality of the care we deliver
  • assessing client access to that care
  • adjusting to do better

Use these resources to stay up to date on all things PI.
