Developing/Implementing the Health Center's Quality Improvement Program

Health care quality and service are reflected in wide variation throughout the country.
Underuse, overuse, and sometimes misuse is prevalent and results in high cost, less
than ideal outcomes, and low patient satisfaction. A central goal of health care quality
improvement is to maintain what is good about existing services in Health Centers
while focusing on the areas that need improvement. Improving the quality of care and
utilization of services are fundamental concepts embraced in “meaningful use” criteria.
This two-part presentation ties together quality improvement program development,
implementation, and appropriate documentation of program activities. This includes the importance of maintaining current clinical and quality management policies and
procedures, systems to track and monitor ongoing and meaningful quality
improvement activities across the health center, and other activities to assure positive
system-wide performance outcomes.
