Quality in Primary Care

Description :

Engaging primary care practices in quality improvement (QI) activities is essential to achieving the triple aim of improving the health of the population, enhancing patient experiences and outcomes, reducing the per capita cost of care, and to improving provider experience. Primary care practices with a strong QI orientation continually seek to improve their own performance and the outcomes of their patients. Primary care is the cornerstone of health care that is effective and efficient and meets the needs of patients, families, and communities. To ensure these efforts are successful, there is a need to build and sustain the ability of primary care practices to engage in QI activities in a continuous and effective way. Practitioners are encouraged to embrace innovation within their practice to further escalate the treatment process and improve patient outcomes.
