JeffAPCT - Quality Improvement (QI)

These videos are the creation of comprehensive PCMH transformation curriculum, addressing population health, quality, safety, and change leadership elements. Leaders with expertise in these domains offer short presentations that can be tailored to the experience and individualized education plan of each learner. Participants may choose to view single presentations or all presentations within a group. These presentations will provide participants with increased competence in areas that were likely not addressed during their training and offer practical strategies to improve with respect to all aspects of the triple aim (improved population health, improved patient care, and decreased cost).  The program will start with two module sets, one on Quality Improvement, and one on Population Health.
