BALTIMORE, MD—Med-IQ, an award-winning, ACCME-accredited provider of continuing medical education (CME), is pleased to announce the launch of its Quality Improvement (QI) Institute, designed to enhance performance and quality in healthcare systems.
As the healthcare industry continues to transition from volume- to value-based models, systems are experiencing enormous pressure to make meaningful, sustainable practice changes that improve and maintain patient health. Med-IQ’s QI Institute is designing learning platforms to alleviate this pressure and drive transformation.
Specifically, Med-IQ has developed a framework to help healthcare organizations initiate, execute, evaluate, and expand focused QI interventions to improve patient care. This framework consists of six phases that offer clinicians the opportunity to evaluate objective data on their current clinical practices and receive tailored education that addresses their targeted areas of interest and need.
“The QI Institute is currently transforming care in more than 25 organizations across the country and is poised to bring measurable improvements to an even broader audience of clinicians and patients,” said Sara Miller, MS, director of the QI Institute and CE Strategy and Content at Med-IQ. “Our published data illustrate statistically and clinically significant improvements in patient health within systems involved in our quality-based initiatives.”
With more than 7 years of experience and more than 20 quality-based initiatives on which to build, Med-IQ established the QI Institute to bring its proven framework to a larger number of clinicians and healthcare systems in an effort to:
- Streamline processes for data collection and analysis
- Foster patient-centered, evidence-based, team-driven care
- Reduce healthcare system fragmentation and improve practice efficiency
- Reduce unnecessary costs and inappropriate utilization of healthcare services
As a result of Med-IQ’s efforts in quality-based interventions, Med-IQ has won 5 awards for excellence in quality-focused educational research, design, and outcomes. In addition, 18 peer-reviewed articles by Med-IQ on quality- and performance-focused initiatives have been published in academic journals.
