Population Health Programs
Community Health Partnership’s Population Health Programs are quality improvement and initiatives coordinated with our community health centers to positively affect population health. Through our Population Health Programs, clinicians can evaluate the health status of patients with chronic conditions as a group.
Through the Quality Improvement (QI) Program, our member community health center network participates in regional and state-wide efforts to improve the quality of care provided to patients of community health centers. The program aims to improve processes, systems, and access to care by implementing best practices and standards that have a positive impact on the health outcomes of the patients.
The purpose of the QI Program is to work collaboratively to monitor, evaluate, and improve the services and patient care provided by community health center (CHC) members. The goal for quality improvement is to resolve identified issues, ensure optimum care of CHC patients, and positively influence the health of patients.
To support CHCs efforts to treat, manage and improve health outcomes of patients with chronic conditions by providing training on evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, technical assistance support on information technology and quality improvement projects, and patient education materials to health centers actively participating in the Quality Improvement program.
To resolve common quality issues affecting delivery of care and services to CHC patients through a system of problem assessment, identification, study, corrective action, monitoring, evaluation, and assessment that is timely and relevant.
To effectively utilize Health Information Technology to gather and analyze data, and to generate reports that can be used to track progress towards quality improvement goals.
