Many QI efforts lack the right collaborative methodology and resource intensity to change clinical practices in meaningful ways. VCSQI’s model has durability and established proof of concept.  Dialogue among clinicians and hospitals is not externally imposed; it is self-motivated. A data repository and QI process are the cornerstones to a successful statewide network. Benefits to members include:
  • Involvement in a multi-disciplinary, peer-to-peer model where dialogue promotes buy-in and encourages adoption of successful quality improvement efforts;
  • Development of a quality indicator dataset that is integrated into a single repository, eliminating the silo approach to data management;
  • Consistency in data aggregation, reporting, documentation, and quality assurance;
  • A means to document evidence of systems change and practice standardization;
  • Potential for savings from quality improvements tied to better patient outcomes, efficient use of resources, and aligned performance incentives;
  • A comprehensive plan to bring all physicians to the level of data collection, reporting, and performance improvement that will lead to system wide quality improvement and sustained reductions in cost of care for all patients;
  • A model extensible to practices and heart programs in other areas.
