Today on COPPHI QI awardee webinar, one participant asked for a place on phQix for departments to share their agency QI plans, which is of course a PHAB measure! Would you like to have a place where people could upload these and you could check them out? Would you post yours?

I think that we would be interested in posting our QI plan. As accreditation progresses, it would be good to know PHABs response on the respective plans as well.
If I see responses to that
If I see responses to that question, I'll make sure to post it!
This could be helpful to many as they are creating quality improvement plans for their department and/or preparing for accreditation.
I agree. It would be fabulous to have a place to upload our own agency QI Plans and to see QI plans from other agencies. There's no need to re-invent the wheel so if there's a place to share, we could all help each other.

I'd be happy to post ours when complete (Hopefully Q1 2013!)...we'd want to be sure postings of plans designate if they are for a local, tribal, territorial or state agency.
This is a great idea everyone! Currently, submitters to PHQIX can upload supporting documents with their submissions, and an agency QI planning document could be included there. Would you want to see these kinds of documents associated with published QI initiatives as an addition, or in a separate place?
If we were to create a separate place for agency QI planning documents on phqix, we first have to do some planning for how this information would be organized and managed. Would someone be willing to send me an example of a planning document?
I would be very interested in this. I would need to make sure that our is up to date. I would be great to organizize by public health area or topic.
I work in the San Joaquin Valley in California with the 8 local public health departments and I am assisting them with PHAB accreditation as well as other PMQI initiatives and would be very interested in seeing real-life examples in order to better help the health departments.
I would also be interested in seeing other agency QI plans as well. Once we have ours developed we may be interested in sharing as well.
Our newly-minted QI team is in self-education mode, and will be tackling the QI plan in 3 weeks. We are starting with a sample plan that we found on NACCHO's website. Happy to post our version of it once it's complete.

Our agency might be interested in sharing our QI Plan and I'd love to see other organization's plans.

We are currrently in the process of developing our QI Plan and would greatly appreciate what other LHD's have created and use some of the other great concepts that are already out there. We will share ours as soon as it is completed. I am just curious how others have developed a QI Plan that has structure but is not rigid, so that quality improvement can be fluid and grow.

This would be great. I think templates are wonderful as long as people don't just copy and paste--and really dive into what works and wouldn't work for their agencies.

As of today, four accredited health departments are sharing their QI plans and reviewer comments with PHQIX! Thank you Spokane, Washington State, Cabarrus Health, and Oklahoma State!

We would be happy to share our 2012-13 QI plan. We also recently developed a companion document that includes objectives and activities specifically focused on building a quality culture at our agency. I'm happy to share that as well.
