Assessing HEALTH’s Quality Improvement Culture
In 2012, the Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) introduced a quality improvement (QI) initiative and has since applied for national accreditation through the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). HEALTH’s ultimate goal to pursue accreditation is to develop and cultivate a QI culture.
About 15 staff members are trained each year, and they identify a program performance issue to develop and complete an outcomes-based QI project 8 to 10 months after training completion.
