QIO Toolkit

Bridges to Excellence, in collaboration with the American Health Quality Association, has developed a toolkit for Quality Improvement Organizations (QIO), which provides a detailed and easy to follow outline of both the BTE program and the roles that QIOs can play in their respective states. This toolkit guides the QIO through the physician/practice performance assessment process, how to effectively convene all the necessary stakeholders, and how to enable practices in the process of practice re-engineering. Communication is a fundamental part of BTE, and this toolkit offers insight based on experience in engaging physicians in BTE and the importance of participating in a performance improvement program.
