Special Initiative: Implementing Quality Improvement to Advance the Healthy Start Agenda – Introducing the Quality Improvement Peer Learning Network (QIPLN) Initiative

January 20, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In an effort to support the Healthy Start Community to achieve the Healthy Start benchmark to establish a quality improvement and performance monitoring process, the EPIC Center will be launching 6-7 peer learning networks (PLNs) each targeting a Healthy Start benchmark. The PLNs will be co-facilitated by members from the Healthy Start Grantee Community and the EPIC Center. Participating Healthy Start programs will identify a Healthy Start benchmark to target for improved performance, form a quality improvement (QI) team at their service site, engage agency administrators in their efforts, develop and implement a QI project plan, and identify and collect performance measures for monitoring impact. QIPLNs will meet on a monthly basis for nine months (February – October). Participating Healthy Start programs will identify two QI Leads to attend monthly QIPLN calls from February to October and to facilitate a QI team to design and implement a QI project at their agency. QIPLN meetings will afford participants the opportunity to collaborate and share their experiences, the strategies they are testing, their QI goals and objectives, and their progress with peers.
