Dear IAHQ members:
The Board of Directors is pleased to let you know that the Illinois Association for Healthcare Quality (IAHQ) has joined PCPI®, a national, clinician-led nonprofit membership organization of organizations focused on health care performance improvement. PCPI is engaged with the full spectrum of health care delivery system stakeholders - clinicians, patients, purchasers, health IT professionals - to improve patient health and safety through innovative approaches to measure, improve and assess performance. PCPI ensures a broad spectrum of voices is heard in the national performance improvement conversation to drive improved health outcomes. IAHQ will continue to serve its members through its own conferences, trainings, webinars and other services.
PCPI has developed more than 350 individual health care measures across 47 clinical conditions or topic areas with approximately 90 endorsed by the National Quality Forum. Many measures are included in national quality reporting programs. PCPI's National Quality Registry Network (NQRN®) is the leading voluntary community for organizations operating or planning registries and using registry information to improve patient outcomes. PCPI's Quality Improvement program highlights leading practices to scale and spread of improvement initiatives, and provides clinicians training in quality improvement methods and tools. PCPI provides a forum for the performance improvement community to explore and develop solutions to the greatest challenges in making meaningful leaps in patient care outcomes.
